Synopsis
Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. It takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of the Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. Sondheim's joyous, musical romp through Rome has desperate lovers, scheming neighbors and secrets behind every toga.
