Description:

 Tragedy tomorrow, Comedy Tonight! A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots by combining situations from time-tested, 2000 year-old comedies by the Roman playwright Plautus, with the infectious energy of the golden age of musicals. The result is a non-stop laugh-fest in which a crafty slave, Pseudolus, schemes to win his freedom by helping his young master win the beautiful courtesan who is betrothed to the mighty soldier Miles Gloriosus.  "Smart, cheeky, buoyant" (New York Times) and one of the funniest musicals ever written.
