Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. Among the songs in the musical are “I’m Calm,” “Free,” “Lovely” and “Comedy Tonight.” The music and lyrics are by Stephen Sondheim and the book is by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart.
