'A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum' - 2016

With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and the book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, the show is inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman Playwright Platus.

 It tells the bawdy story of the slave Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. It employs all the classic elements of farce: puns, slamming doors, mistaken identities and satirical comments on social class.

Its most famous number Comedy Tonight was a last-minute fix just before it opened on Broadway.
