Presented by Performance Now Theatre Company in Lakewood. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2,000 year old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of the beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two. With songs like, “Comedy Tonight,” “Lovely” and “Everybody Ought to have a Maid,” this unforgettable musical allows an ensemble of comic actors to shine.
