What You'll Get


Travel to ancient Rome and experience the wild antics of the mischievous slave Pseudolus in Stephen Sondheim's laugh-out-loud musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. This slapstick romp sings and dances its way through mistaken identities, a house full of courtesans and an elaborate web of lies -- all adding up to one uproarious night of theater. The winner of six Tony Awards, Forum is one of the funniest musicals ever written, as Sondheim collaborated with writer Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H, Tootsie) to seamlessly combine situations from the timeless comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the fast-paced, slapstick energy of classic vaudeville. Step into the Ethel M. Barber Theater as House Theatre Company Member and Northwestern Theatre Adjunct Professor Matt Hawkins directs this musical comedy featuring the classic show tunes "Lovely," "Bring Me My Bride" and the Broadway favorite "Comedy Tonight."

Event Description:

Post show discussions are scheduled for February 12 and February 25.
