A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Nevada Conservatory Theater has a new production of a classic musical based on an even more classical play. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is based on the plays of Plautus - the Roman comedian. He has confused lovers and disguised suitors chasing all over Rome. And they sing about it. Eventually, the slave Pseudolos manages to get everyone into the right relationship and they mostly live happily every after.
