A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum at the Ring Theatre Through April 15

Featuring numerous set pieces, witty banter, and togas, the fast-paced, cheeky classic Broadway musical that satirizes Roman times and the swinging '60s makes its run at the University of Miami Ring Theatre. Looking to win his freedom from slavery, Pseudolus attempts to lure the sexy courtesan Philia for his young, love-stricken master, Hero. Pseudolus has to somehow pry Philia from her parents as well as from Miles Gloriosus, the captain of the Roman army who has been promised her hand in marriage. What Pseudolus discovers along the way will turn everyone's lives upside down. Filled with twists, crazy musical numbers, side-splitting situations, and zany characters who poke fun at all things Roman, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is musical slapstick at its best.
