A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
Stephen Sondheim (Music & Lyrics); Burt Shevelove & Larry Gelbart (Book)
Based on the Plays of Plautus
|David Blackburn (Hero) & Dan Demers (Pseudolus)|
The cast and co-directors of the current Forum at Hillbarn Theatre clearly understand why they and we are there spending yet another evening with this oft-revived, much-beloved musical; and they all deliver a thousand-plus hilarious, bawdy, silly, and sometimes even surprising reasons to loosen our lungs and laugh away the night.
For my full review of all the rib-tickling antics and performances, please link to the new regional section of Talkin' Broadway:
