“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” opens at Hampton Theatre Company

May 23 @ 7:00 pm June 9 @ 2:30 pm

Laugh out loud at this big, bawdy, boisterous musical comedy “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” Featuring music and lyrics from Stephen Sondheim and a book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, “Forum” won six Tony Awards after premiering on Broadway in 1962, and enjoyed an impressive 964-performance run. A nonstop laughfest featuring more than a dozen toga-clad actors, the musical tells the story of Pseudolus, a crafty Roman slave who struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for his freedom. The musical includes an avalanche of puns, slamming doors, pratfalls, cases of mistaken identity, satirical comments on social class … and unforgettable music. “Something for everyone, a comedy tonight!”

Performances of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” will run from May 23 through June 9 on Thursdays and Fridays at 7, Saturdays at 8, and Sundays at 2:30. An additional matinee performance will be offered on Saturday, June 8, at 2:30, prior to the regular 8 p.m. performance that evening. Two talkbacks with the cast will be offered to ticketholders immediately following the May 31 and June 7 Friday evening performances. 

Tickets are $48 for adults, $43 for seniors, and $27 for students 25 and under, and are available at hamptontheatre.org or by calling 631.653.8955.
