Theater Down South will soon stage the local adaptation of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical farce.
A legendary musical theater composer, Stephen Sondheim is the recipient of eight Tony Awards (including one for Lifetime Achievement), an Academy Award, a Pulitzer Prize and several Grammy Awards under his belt.
Inspired by the works of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus, Forum marked Sondheim’s first time writing both music and lyrics for a Broadway show, and it remains one of his most popular works. It had its original Broadway run in 1962 and has since enjoyed two successful Broadway revivals.
Theater Down South’s production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum coincides with Sondheim’s 80th birthday, which is being celebrated with a year of concerts and revivals worldwide.
This theater group is dedicated to providing quality live theater experiences for families and communities in the South Metro area. Forum is their 4th major production.
The show is directed by veteran stage actor Michael Williams (who is also the company’s Artistic Director) and will be running at the Insular Life Theater, Filinvest Corporate City, Alabang on October 2, 3, 8, 9, 24 and 30. Tickets are now available at all Ticketworld outlets (Tel. No. 891-9999).
