A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.

A review in The Wall Street Journal in 2017 said: “The musical about hanky-panky in ancient Rome remains the funniest ever written.”

Stephen Sondheim’s score includes great songs and comedy hits, such as Something For Everyone, A Comedy Tonight and Everybody Ought to have a Maid.
