Stephen Sondheim's classic Tony Award-winning Best Musical is fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest Broadway shows ever written! A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum is a nonstop laugh-fest 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 bevy of beautiful showgirls. This unforgettable, hysterical musical comedy will have you laughing all the way to the Forum with "something for everyone, a comedy tonight!"
