Short intro

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart. Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus 251183 BC, specifically Pseudolus, Miles Gloriosus, and Mostellaria, the musical 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. The plot displays many classic elements of farce, including puns, the. The complete soundtrack to the 1962 musical A Funny Thing Happened on. This is the original Broadway cast recording with the music and lyrics written by Stephen Sondheim and the book : Norman Taurog. Stars: Frankie Avalon, Deborah Walley, Cesar Romero. Next . The Princess and the Pirate 1944. So A FUNNY THING HAPPENED is actually a comedy of daily regular life in Rome - it is not a realistic view of Roman society, but it is a type of distorted mirror of that society. It is also important for another reason: Zero Mostel. There is no doubt that Mostel was one of the great Broadway performers of his generation, but his movie record on this is spotty. For that reason alone A FUNNY THING HAPPENED is worth watching and enjoying. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a 1966 farce musical comedy film, based on the stage musical of the same name. It was inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus 251-183 B. specifically Pseudolus, Miles Gloriosus and Mostellaria and 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. The film was directed by Richard Lester, with Zero Mostel and Jack Gilford reprising their stage roles. Funny Thing Happened on Way to Forum Original Broadway Cast. Sarah Brightman. 5 out of 5 stars 31. Audio CD. Sondheim had written lyrics for the classics West Side Story and Gypsy, but he wanted to compose as well, and after 1954's Saturday Night was derailed, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum 1962 gave him his first Broadway show. Based on the Roman comedies of Plautus, it's a light frothy entertainment as promised in the opening led by the outrageous Zero Mostel as the scheming slave Pseudolus. 0 out of 5 stars A great Addition to any Original Cast Album Collection. Reviewed in the United States on April 4, 2013. Verified Purchase. The plot is way too complex to fully detail here, though we can note that it hinges on the fact that three suburban Roman houses are next door to one another. Forgot your password.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.
