The third and final installment of the Illuminati saga! The dread society is mounting its biggest assault ever, and Dexter, Ethel and Echelon the Android must face innumerable logic-defying dangers! Nazis! Gunfire! Fisticuffs! Space battles! And the return of an old nemesis. But our heroes always come through, and by the end, the world will once again be saved!...right?...
"This is one secret society that shouldn't be kept a secret. ****½" - Winnipeg Free Press (Illuminati II, 2011)
Broadway's greatest farce is fast-paced, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from the 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
In this non-stop laughfest, a slave struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan for his young master, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two. This unforgettable, hysterical musical allows a terrific ensemble of comedic actors to shine--"something for everyone, a comedy tonight!"
