A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM
Season: 60 (2005 - 2006)
Run Date(s): Aug. 26, 2005 - Sep. 18, 2005
Description: Music and Lyrics Stephen Sondheim Book by Burt Shevelove & Larry Gelbart "Tragedy tomorrow, comedy tonight!" Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, and one of the funniest musicals every written - the perfect escape from life's troubles. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from 2000-year-old comedies with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. The result is a non-stop laugh-fest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of Philia, a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan, for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom.
