A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Musical

Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Directed by Judith Owens-Lancaster. Broadway’s greatest 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 the Roman playwright Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
