Considered by many to be the funniest musical ever written, FORUM has no shame in what it will do for a laugh—sight gags, running jokes, vaudeville, slapstick, impossible disguises—you name it. It all takes place in ancient Rome when a young man falls in love with the girl-for-sale next door. His servant steps in to help him out, but this servant holds back nothing. Whatever it takes, he will make his young master happy. The plot is easy to follow but too hard to explain here. Just believe us—FORUM will delight you with its charming songs, flirty dances, hilarious characters, and its innocence. Recommended for ages: 12 and up.
