A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON

THE WAY TO THE FORUM

Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Originally Produced on Broadway by Harold S. Prince

 

Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. 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.

 

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.

 

This unforgettable, hysterical musical allows a terrific ensemble of comedic actors to shine – "something for everyone, a comedy tonight!"

 

Presented through a special arrangement with Music theatre International (MTI).  All authorized performance materials supplied by MTI.  www..MTIShows.com
