January 15, 16
How often do you get the chance to see an Ancient Roman slave break out into song while wooing an obstinate woman and earning his freedom? If your answer is “never,” you may want to buy a ticket to A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, a true musical masterpiece presented by the local theater company Little Radical Theatrics. Known as one of the most sidesplitting productions in the annals of Broadway, this musical written by Steven Sondheim details the trials and tribulations of Pseudolus, who hopes to earn his freedom by wooing a beautiful courtesan for his hapless master, Hero. Hysterical mishaps and mistaken identities ensure in this production infused with new life by director Michael J. Mirra.
