A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum


Watch This, Australia's first and only Sondheim repertory company, make their Chapel Off Chapel debut with a world first reimagined production of the classic Broadway musical – featuring an all-female-identifying cast. A fast-paced, witty, irreverent farce, it is considered one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. A nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus struggles to win the hand of a beautiful courtesan named Philia for his master, Hero, in exchange for freedom from enslavement.
