Description

Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written – the perfect escape from life’s troubles. A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. Add a score by Stephen Sondheim to the zany mix of mistaken identities, lovely courtesans and scheming servants, and you have the recipe for a sure-fire audience pleaser that will have you howling in your seat!
