  • "It's directed by Anthony Lawson, who draws out much of the script's ample humor to create several laugh-out-moments, while letting the songs, which range from bawdy romps to romantic throwaways, have their moments." Star News (PDF)
Synopsis
This joyous romp through ancient Rome tells the story of Pseudolus, a crafty slave always scheming to earn his freedom. His latest plan revolves around his young master, Hero, who has fallen in love with the courtesan next door, the lovely virgin Philia. Filled with mistaken identities, pirates, kidnappings, groanworthy puns, stunning surprises, wild chases, bawdy humor, masquerades, deceptions, and the infectious energy of classic vaudeville, the plot follows Pseudolus’s long, convoluted, and hilarious path to freedom.
