Broadway’s greatest farce promises to have audiences rolling in the aisles. This fast-paced, witty and irreverent comedy is one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum skillfully combines time-tested comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. A nonstop laugh-fest in which crafty slave Pseudolus attempts to win the hand of the beautiful but slow-witted maiden, Philia, for his young master, Hero, in exchange for his own freedom. The plot rapidly twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, bawdy innuendos and harebrained schemes. This unforgettable musical can be enjoyed at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights.
