Something familiar, something peculiar, something for everyone -- a comedy tonight.
So begins this crazy, zany farce of a musical. Fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of
the funniest musicals ever written -- the perfect escape from life's troubles. Forum
takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000 year
old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic
vaudeville. The result is a non-stop laugh-fest in which a crafty slave struggles
to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan for his young master
in exchange for freedom. With its unforgettable characters, a hysterical, perfectly
constructed book Forum is one of the most popular musicals of the last 40 years.
