A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, by By Burt Shelove and Larry Gelbart, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

4.0
I liked many things about this show. I thought the set was outstanding, costumes good, the "look" of the show was very good. The flow of the show was excellant, entrances and exits well timed and blocking was very good, especially for the layout of the room. The energy of the actors was very good as well as the comedic timing. The show was very well cast from an acting standpoint. The interplay between Pseudolus and Hysterium was very entertaining.

Vocals were up and down, Pseudolus, Senex, Domina, Philia and Miles Gloriosus were all good, although I think Philia and Miles Gloriosus were the best. Hero had some pitch problems on his first number, but was ok on the rest. He suffered in duets with Senex and Philia in that his voice was just not as stong as theirs, but he sounded fine. It is obvious that Hysterium is not a trained singer, he had some pitch problems, but more rhythm problems. However his songs were character songs and he did a great job of playing to his comedic strengths.

Overall I liked many more things about this show than I disliked. I would recommend it to anyone for just a fun lighthearted evening of entertainment. The audience when I saw it certainly seemed to be enjoying it.
