Something familiar, something peculiar - something for everyone: A comedy tonight! Crazy schemes and mistaken identities abound in this side-splitting musical farce. The slave Pseudolus plots to win his freedom by helping Hero win the heart of Philia, a virgin courtesan promised to the renowned warrior Miles Gloriosus. But the plans go awry and Pseudolus is left trying to keep track of three people disguised as the virgin, an angry warrior, an owner who's suspicious wife is trying to prove her husband is cheating on her, and an old man searching for his lost children.
And then things start to get complicated.
