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.
