Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Burt Shelove and Larry Gelbart
Directed by Scott Cook; Musical direction by Shannon Schrumm

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 the 2000 year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. Pseudolus struggles to win the hand of a beautiful courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for his freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, and a showgirl or two.
