A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

The perfect escape from life's troubles, "…Forum," takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from the time-tested, 2000 year old comedies of Plautus mixed with the infectious energy of vaudeville. The result: a non-stop laugh-fest in which a crafty slave (Pseudolus) struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan (Philia) for his young master (Hero), in exchange for freedom.
