A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a fast-paced farce that promises to have you rolling on the floor. Taking straight from the roots of comedy, FORUM combines the ancient comedies of Plautus with a vaudevillian delivery. Pseudolus schemes to win the heart of the beautiful virgin, Phelia, for his young master, Hero. In exchange, Hero will grant Pseudolus his freedom once and for all. However, things are never as easy as they seem. Chaos ensues with hair-brained schemes, cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and convoluted plot twists. One of the funniest musicals ever written, FORUM promises: “something for everyone: a comedy tonight!”
