Revival of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Dr. Sophie Dao offers optometry services at her office in Milpitas, California, where she has received recognition as the city’s Best Optometrist every year since 2007. She provides eye exams, contact lens and glasses fittings, and treatment of conditions such as glaucoma and eye infections, among other services. In her leisure time, Dr. Sophie Dao enjoys attending Broadway plays in New York.

Broadway playgoers in New York can look forward to the revival of the classic Stephen Sondheim musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum in the spring of 2015. With a planned opening in April and the first preview beginning in March, the revival may feature Tony award-winning actor James Corden as the character of Pseudolus, although this remains unconfirmed. Alex Timbers will direct the show.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, in its first run on Broadway in 1962 at the Alvin Theatre, quickly became popular and garnered six Tony Awards. The musical tells the story of the Roman slave Pseudolus, who plots to seize his freedom from his masters, Senex and Domina, by helping their son Hero to win the love of Philia, a virgin upon whom Senex also has his eye.
