       Sondheim’s musical romp through Rome has desperate lovers, scheming neighbors and secrets behind every toga. One of Broadway’s greatest farces is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals.”

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” takes comedy back to its roots, combining 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright  Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
