Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a story with shenanigans, hijinks, and tomfoolery as a lowly servant endeavors to scheme his way to freedom in this antic romp through Rome with desperate lovers, scheming neighbors, and scandalous secrets behind every toga. The plot twists with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, and a showgirl or two. This joyous romp of a musical will have you dancing in the aisles with the infectious energy of slapstick and vaudeville!
