A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the forumA 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.

It 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.
