A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, by Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim/ Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart
Dreadful
Monday, July 19, 2010
1.0
For forty dollars a ticket, I expected Lyric Stage to have a decent production and production values. What we saw and heard were a weak pit band, a flat trumpet player and horrible acting and directing.

Clearly, people were hired due to their vocal talent which was wonderful, but there's more to a musical than just singing a song.

When the two teenaged boys sitting near us were completely bored during this production of "Forum", you know that something is dreadfully wrong.

Selling popcorn at intermission? Now, not only did we sit through a bad production, we had to listen to people smacking on popcorn. How low are you going to lower this bar Lyric Stage? People, it's a 2 hour show. Do you really believe that people can't sit quietly and attentively for two hours without having to put food in their mouths!

All this for forty dollars a ticket!?
We won't be back.
