Based - very loosely - on the plays of Plautus, A Funny Thing...ran for three years on Broadway with Zero Mostel as the cowardly slave, Pseudolus. The first British production, with Frankie Howerd, ran almost as long and spawned the TV series Up Pompeii! A Funny Thing...was only Sondheim's third musical and the first for which he wrote the score as well as the lyrics. On the first two, West Side Story and Gypsy, he had written lyrics only. It opened on Broadway in May 1962 and ran for 964 performances.

About the Author:

Stephen Sondheim made his name writing the lyrios of West Side Story and Gypsy, before going on to create Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures, Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, Assassins and Passion. All are published or distributed by NHB.

Review:

"'The funniest, bawdiest and most enchanting musical that Plautus, with a little help from Stephen Sondheim..., ever wrote... The American theatre has not had a lyricist like this since Hart or Porter' New York Times"
