The Dress Circle: An "All-star" version of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum"

An “all-star” version of Stephen Sondheim’s “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” to welcome the upcoming Princeton Festival production will air on this week’s Dress Circle (5/27 7:00 p.m.).   We’ll be playing a large percentage of this delightful score using the original Broadway cast, original London cast, the 1996 Broadway revival, and the film if time permits.  

It appears that funny is funny, and this musical is based on the life of a character, Pseudolus, found in one of the twenty extant plays (of an estimated 130) of Roman playwright Plautus who lived over one hundred years B.C.  In this program, you’ll hear performances by four different “Pseudoli,” Zero Mostel, Frankie Howerd, Nathan Lane, and Jason Alexander along with a superb supporting cast.
