This Tony-winning Broadway 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 time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.


“Forum” is a nonstop laugh-fest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to gain his freedom by winning the hand of a beautiful courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two. In other words, “something appealing, something appalling, something for everyone, a comedy tonight!”


The opening performance on June 10, 2018 will be followed by a special “Meet-the-Artists” reception.
