A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is the one of the best musical by Stephen Sondheim. Everyone was excited about this Thursday night because of the show and it also gives us the first opportunity to attend the show at the Illinois Theatre. The first thing surprised me is the perfect seat because it is super close to the stage that allows us to see all kinds of delicate costumes and plenty of emotions on performers’ face. The whole stage was very fancy but well-organized, there are orchestras on both sides and also a fake swimming pool close to the center of the stage. Everyone on the seat just can’t wait to see what is behind the red curtain which has a happy face and a sad face on it.
Who ever knew that the adventure to help yourself could be full of so many surprises?
