Broadway’s greatest farce promises to have audiences rolling in the aisles. This fast-paced, witty, and irreverent comedy is one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum skillfully combines time-tested comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. A nonstop laughfest in which crafty slave Pseudolus attempts to win the hand of the beautiful but slow-witted maiden, Philia, for his young master, Hero, in exchange for his own freedom. The plot rapidly twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, bawdy innuendos and hair-brained schemes. This unforgettable musical promises: “Something for everyone: a comedy tonight!”
