A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum, 2013

funnyBook by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Based on the plays of Plautus

May 11-19

Forum, set in Roman times, tells the story of Pseudolus, a slave who must obey his domineering mistress, his master (“That Dirty Old Man”, one of the show’s musical numbers, will tell you all you need to know about him), and their idealistic son named (appropriately) Hero. Pseudolus yearns to be free- until, one day, his young master agrees to grant him his freedom in exchange for the girl of his dreams (who just happens to be the young virgin in a house of courtesans living next door!). Come and enjoy an evening of musical farce full of togas, dancing girls, mishaps, chases, disguises… and hilarity!
