"Something familiar, something peculiar, something for everyone: a comedy tonight!" This uproarious farce tells the story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master, Hero, earn the love of a courtesan, Philia. All Pseudolus needs to do is outsmart Hero’s parents, Marcus Lycus, the dealer who owns Philia, and the swaggering soldier Miles Gloriosus, to whom Philia has been promised. Inspired by the works of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus, this broad, bawdy, and fast-paced comedy has won multiple Tony awards over the years and is considered one of the all-time great classic musical comedies!
It's scheduled to run through Oct. 4th. If you go, let us know how it was!
