One of the funniest musicals ever written, Stephen Sondheim's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
comes to the Renton Civic Theatre. Sondheim, along with writers Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, combines plot elements from the comedies of ancient Roman playwright Plautus with the high-spirited antics of Vaudeville for a wild and witty farce set in the ancient city. In exchange for his freedom, a crafty slave sets out to woo a beautiful (but not too bright) courtesan for his young master. Bawdy puns, mistaken identities, and sly social commentary (not to mention Sondheim's classic songs) garnered this Broadway hit multiple Tony awards and a subsequent film adaptation starring Zero Mostel.
