A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum @ Broadway Rose

Dan Murphy is usually the "M.C." for Broadway Rose's productions, introducing the show and thanking donors. As far as I know, he has never before graced their stage as an actor. After "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," I am convinced that it should become a far more common occurrence. His Pseudolus  is hilarious.

The cover of the playbill should have been a reminder that "West Side Story" and "Forum" were presented at Broadway Rose back-to-back, but I just thought of the nice combination of dark Sondheim washed down by light-Sondheim. They really do make unexpectedly nice bookends. Go see Broadway Rose flex their muscles once again, but in an entirely different way.
