A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a seriously hilarious Tony Award winning Broadway musical  that involves the scheming Psedulous, an ambitious slave in ancient Rome, who wants his freedom. By convincing his master’s son, Hero, to marry the lovely Philia, Psedulous hopes his master Senex will free him. A good plan, but as the opening song tells us: “Something familiar, something peculiar,
something for everyone: a comedy tonight!”
