Kentridge Players present 'A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum!'
The Kentridge Players' fall production, "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum!", combines situations from time-tested, 2,000-year-old comedies of the Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
The result is hilarious.
Performances are 7 p.m. Nov. 13-16 and Nov. 20-23 with two 2 o'clock Saturday matinees at the Kentridge High School Performing Arts Center, 12430 SE 208th St.
The play is written by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.
Crafty slave (Pseudolus) struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan (Philia) for his young master (Hero), in exchange for freedom. This fast-paced, witty and irreverent stage classic, has been called "Broadway's greatest farce and probably one of the funniest musical comedies ever written."
It is under the direction of Kentridge artistic director Jennifer Grajewski and music director Catherine Robinson, as well as community leaders Tarik Abouzied and Eia Waltzer.
Reserved seating is $10 or $15. General seating is $5 for the Saturday matinee.
