About the show

The Heights Players revives Stephen Sondheim's joyous, musical romp through Rome with desperate lovers, scheming neighbors, and secrets behind every toga. More…

Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, not to mention a showgirl or two. 'A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum' takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2,000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. The score features favorites such as "Lovely," "Everybody Ought to Have a Maid," and "Comedy Tonight."
