Ring Theatre: ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum’


A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum opens April 11 at UM's Ring Theatre.

The Jerry Herman Ring Theatre presents A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, one of the funniest farces ever written. Taking comedy back to its roots, this light, fast-paced, irreverent romp combines situations from Roman comedies with the slapstick energy of classic vaudeville. The result is a nonstop laugh-fest in which a crafty slave, seeking to earn his freedom, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful courtesan for his young master. With so much advance demand for this Broadway classic, a third week of shows has been added.

Since its Broadway debut in 1962, Forum—book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim—has won several Tony awards, including Best Musical and Best Book.

The Ring Theatre is at 1312 Miller Drive, Coral Gables. Show time is 8 p.m. on April 11 to 14, 18 to 21, and 26 to 28. There is also a 2 p.m. matinee on April 14, 15, 21, and 28.

Regular admission for weeknight and matinee shows is $22; seniors and UM faculty/staff/alumni pay $20; student tickets are  $10. Regular admission for Friday and Saturday nights is $25; seniors and UM faculty/staff/alumni pay $25; student tickets are  $15.

Tickets are on sale currently. Box office hours are 12 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and two hours before each performance.  All major credit cards are accepted. Call the box office at 305-284-3355, visit in person at 1312 Miller Drive, Coral Gables, or go online at www.miami.edu/ring.
