We went to see “A funny thing happened on the way to the Forum” yesterday at Marriott Lincolnshire Theater.
It was very good. Lots of energy, good singing, and dancing.
The actor who played Pseudolus was hilarious. He played with the audience, mugged with the other players, and was generally fun to watch.
I highly recommend this play.
As a side note … I finally found out where the tune “A Comedy Tonight” came from. The only time I had previously heard it was when I was a kid on WGN Channel 9. They ran commercials for a block of sit-coms that included Hogans Hero’s and the Dick Van Dyke show. “A Comedy Tonight” ran on the commercial as the theme.
