Foothill Music Theatre has provided us with a pleasant venture into ancient Rome in its A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, but I fear the trip will be too-soon forgotten.  This is a journey that could have been so much more if this cast had been given a bit more leeway to let loose and clown it up in order to let this wonderful show’s lyrics, music, and book do their magic of providing outlandish entertainment.

My full review is posted on Talkin' Broadway:
