Broadway’s greatest farce is fast-paced, witty and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum combines situations from the 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. 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. 

Season ticket holders will come on opening night.
