A farcical plot to woo a beautiful lady descends upon ancient Rome throughout the musical comedy A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. With his freedom at stake, a crafty slave invests all his time and energy in securing his shy master’s romantic ambitions. However, along the way, this hapless wingman tumbles into a cluster of zany characters and situations that spiral into a vortex of mistaken identities, wild chases, and side-splitting humor. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, one of composer Stephen Sondheim’s earliest works, pays tribute to the most absurd of vaudevillian shows and netted a mantle’s worth of Tony Awards during its original Broadway run.

The Ritz Theatre proudly soaks up the show’s use of parody and slapstick as a former vaudeville movie house and a current registrant on the National Register of Historic Places. The theater’s interior, which was inspired by Greek-revival architecture, boasts 25-foot canvas murals, carved balustrades, and balconies draped in velvet curtains and recycled subtitles from old silent films.
