Synopsis: The play takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested 2,000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. The result is a non-stop laugh-fest in which the crafty slave, Pseudolus, struggles to win the hand of the beautiful but slow-witted courtesan, Philia, for his young master, Hero, in exchange for his freedom.
