Broadway’s greatest farce: light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent; one of the funniest musicals ever written. "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. It is a nonstop laughfest. As the opening song announces “something for everyone, a comedy tonight!”

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com
