A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Sep 25 – Nov 29, 2009 / The Goodspeed - 6 Main Street, East Haddam, CT 06423 view map

America's Funniest Musical!

Screamingly funny! Downright hilarious! Comedy reigns when a thoroughly disarming slave named Pseudolus schemes to gain his freedom by helping his master’s son get the girl he desires. It’s an accelerating whirl of mixed identities, swinging doors, double takes, double entendres, outrageous puns and gags that will keep you laughing all the way home. Winner of tons of Tony Awards including Best Musical.
