About this show

Vaudeville, comedy, and farce create a laugh riot in this Tony Award winner for Best Musical, featuring a book by Burt Shevelove & Larry Gelbart, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. In a quest to win his freedom, a crafty slave in ancient Rome strives to win the hand of a beautiful courtesan for his master. Mistaken identities, wild chases, bawdy humor, and zany characters add up to outlandish spectacle and irreverent hilarity. And Sondheim's music lifts it all into the sublime.
