A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, Music by Stephen Sondheim, Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, and a showgirl or two.

Presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International
