It’s Truly ‘Comedy Tonight’
A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM

By Bob and Karen Isaacs

BOB:  At Goodspeed they’ve opened A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum which is a great musical comedy and they are doing a terrific, terrific job with Adam Heller in the role of Pseudolous which was originally played by Zero Mostel.

KAREN: This is just fun. This is a musical that you don’t have to think about.

BOB:  They don’t want you to think.

KAREN:  They start with the song “Comedy Tonight” and you know it’s funny. It is slapstick, there is reminiscences of burlesque, mistaken identities, courtesans.

BOB:  It takes place in ancient Rome.

KAREN: Practically everyone has heard “Everyone Ought to Have a Maid” and the opening song.

BOB: Everyone will love this.

KAREN: Teenagers will love this – they will really GET the humor.

BOB: We took our college student granddaughter and she had a great time.

KAREN:  It’s slapstick, it’s fun and the lyrics are funny because Stephen Sondheim wrote them.

BOB:  Go see it. It’s a Goodspeed at East Haddam through Novemeber.

KAREN: You’ve got plenty of time to go see it.

BOB:   You will definitely enjoy it. Director Ted Pappas did a great job.

KAREN: The men will find the courtesans are spectacular.
