Explain A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum: It is a comedic love story about a young man, Hero, who falls in love with a courtesan who has already been betrothed to another man. Upon hearing this situation Hero’s slave Pseudelous agrees to help Hero win her over in return for his freedom. As Pseudelous lies his way through this twisted web of a plan there is nothing but false death, mistaken identities, unexpected visitors and a lot of pandemonium. It is not until the very end that all wrongs are made right, all identities are revealed, and love wins.

Tell us about your role: I play a courtesan, a Gemanae twin, who is graceful, winsome and does everything with her twin.

What should audiences take away from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the ForumThere is a lot of physical humor as well as spoken. Expect to laugh, a lot!

One interesting fact about yourself: For any Grease fans, in college I took a speak class taught by the actress Annette Charles (aka Cha Cha DeGregorio)
