A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum was a smash hit at this year's Stratford Shakespeare Festival and this holiday season it comes to Toronto with both stars alternating in the lead role of Pseudolus. Bruce Dow originated the role in Stratford but had to bow out due to a vocal chord injury, at which point Sean Cullen stepped in and finished out the season. Now the two very funny men are coming together and sharing the role, which gives audiences the perfect excuse to come and visit The Forum twice!
In a year that has seen many celebrations of Stephen Sondheim's work (including a very special Q&A presented by Mirvish a few weeks ago) it seems only fitting to get to end out the year with one of his early works. A true farce, A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum promises sex, greed, comedy and TOGAS!
Brand new production photos were just realized showcasing the cast in their new home at The Canon Theatre and both Sean Cullen and Bruce Dow in the lead role of Pseudolus.
