A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Posted on by Elizabeth Draus Posted in Around Town, Laugh your socks off, Music, Theatre, This Week | Leave a comment


Inspired by the works of ancient Roman playwright PlautusA Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a musical tale of love, mistaken identity, and farcical comedy. When Pseudolis, a wily slave living in ancient Rome, is offered freedom by his young master, Hero, in exchange for a favor, he jumps at the chance. The catch? He must help Hero win over Philia, the pretty courtesan next door. This seems impossible, as Philia has been given to Miles Gloriosus, a formidable military captain, who will soon come to take her away. Pseudolis, however, has a few tricks up his sleeve. When Hero and Pseudolis spirit Philia away from her master under the guise that she has contracted the mysterious Cretan Plague, pandemonium ensues.

Tickets cost $33 – $48, and can be purchased here. The show is being performed at Stage 773, located at 1225 West Belmont Avenue until May 24 only! For more information, click here.
