Ring Theatre: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Coral Gables (March 26, 2012) — One of Broadway’s Greatest Musical Farces!
Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart;
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

"Tragedy tomorrow, comedy tonight!" begins one of Broadway's most famous musicals. Forum is light, fast-paced, irreverent and one of the funniest farces ever written! It takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from Roman comedies with the slapstick energy of classic vaudeville. The result is a non-stop laugh-fest in which a crafty slave, seeking to earn his freedom, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful courtesan for his young master. With glorious costumes, an ultra-talented cast, break-neck speed and multi-level scenery, Forum promises to be the hottest ticket in town. With so much advance demand for this Broadway classic, we’ve even added a third week! Don’t wait….tickets will be selling fast! Show times are April 11-14, 18-21, and 26-28 at 8 pm; April 14, 15, 21, and 28 at 2 pm.
