Eric C. lead a great cast through a funny, action packed show. It was very enjoyable, and I would gladly see it again. The theatre is a nice facility, with comfortable seats, and a good sound system.

One of the funniest musicals in the American Songbook, this clever, tuneful take on silly doings in ancient Rome makes for an evening of giddy entertainment. Combining the best traditions of Greek comedy, musical theatre and just a dash (maybe more) of burlesque, the tale of the wily slave out to win his freedom is a delight for all. Throw in some bright tunes from one of Americas’ best composers and a bevy of beautiful girls and you have an audience pleaser for everyone in the audience. Comedy Tonight!
