“Tragedy tomorrow, comedy tonight!” Broadway’s greatest farce is light fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. Comedy reigns supreme when a thoroughly disarming slave named Pseudolus schemes to gain his freedom by helping his master’s son get the girl he desires. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, this hilarious slapstick farce is filled with outrageous puns and gags that will keep you laughing all the way home!
