Something for everyone…a Comedy Tonight! Kick off your Holiday Season with Broadway’s greatest musical farce, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. A hilarious romp through Ancient Rome with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and an all-male troupe of gifted comic actors. Join us for loads of laughter and chaos when Pseudolus, an ambitious (but somewhat lousy) slave, tries to win his freedom by playing matchmaker for his innocent young master. With blustering generals, anxious sidekicks and courtesans to contend with, it won’t be an easy task!
“Michael Urie is perfection as the frantic slave Hysterium. He’s hilarium whether twitching through “I’m Calm” or preening through “I’m Lovely,” bringing quirky charm and humor to the part.”
– Michael Musto
“Michael Urie (of “Ugly Betty” repute) gives Hysterium, Pseudolus’s fellow slave and unwilling ally, a sunny disposition that is unlike the usually neurotic depiction of the character and makes his later throes seem all that more droll.”
– NY Times
“It would be unfair to pick and choose among his well-cast colleagues, though I should mention Michael Urie (Hysterium), fondly remembered by fans of “Ugly Betty,” who is his grade-A second banana.”
