A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

  • Ethel M. Barber Theater 30 Arts Circle Drive Evanston, IL, 60208 United States (map)

Rome is flipped upside down when a quick-thinking slave named Pseudolus attempts to win freedom in a matchmaking scheme that sparks a vaudevillian romp of Grecian slaves, soldiers, and whores! Turning the ancient comedies of Plautus into a farce for the ages, House Theatre Company Member and Northwestern Theatre Adjunct Professor Matt Hawkins directs this satirical Tony Award-winning musical comedy with a reimagined take on gender stereotypes, social class, and the intersection of love and comedy.
