A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum – YSU Theater
Youngstown State University’s Department of Theater and Dance will present the musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and based on the book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart. The show’s run is scheduled for November 18-December 4. Pseudolus is the laziest slave in Rome and has but one wish, to purchase his freedom. When his master and mistress leave for the day he finds out that the young master has fallen in love with a virgin in the house of Lycus, a slave dealer specializing in beautiful women. Pseudolus concocts a deal in which he will be freed if he can procure the girl for young Hero. Of course, it can’t be that simple, as everything begins to go wrong.
