Funny Thing Happened On Way to the Forum, A

Sondheim / Shevelove / Gelbart

Loosely based on the plays of Plautus, A Funny Thing... ran for three years on Broadway. The first British production, starring Frankie Howerd as the cowardly slave Pseudolus, ran almost as long and spawned the TV series Up Pompeii!

A Funny Thing... was Sondheim's third musical and the first for which he wrote the score as well as the lyrics.

The funniest, bawdiest and most enchanting musical that Plautus, with a little help from Stephen Sondheim..., ever wrote. -  New York Times


Cast : 8M, 6F
