A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

December 4, 2018 - December 30, 2018
  • This event has passed.

Comedy tonight! Broadway’s greatest musical farce takes us back to Ancient Rome for a unique and unforgettable production featuring a gender-bent ensemble. Pseudolus, a devious slave, makes a deal to win his freedom by playing matchmaker for his lovesick master, Hero. Rife with pompous generals, domineering parents, and wiley courtesans, this hilarious Tony-winning musical is a non-stop laugh-fest with “something for everyone!”
