Weekend watch: ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The Forum’

Thursday and Friday, July 23-26

The 50th season of the Straw Hat comes to a close with a laugh. Minnesota State University Moorhead’s summer stock pulls out the stops for the slapstick farce, “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The Forum.”

Stephen Sondheim’s comic twist on life and love (or rather, lust) in ancient Rome follows the savvy slave Pseudolus who tries to woo a beauty for his master. The adult-themed show starts at 7:30 Thursday night and Friday and again Tuesday through July 26 in Hansen Theatre, MSUM. Tickets range from $10 to $25. (218) 477-2271.
