Comedy, at last! Having lost their opening night to a power failure, the students of Montgomery College Summer Dinner Theatre came roaring back with energy, style, and verve. A Funny Thingis a very, very funny thing. Directed by Walter Ware III with Musical Direction by John Henderson, this modern reimagining of Roman farces features songs by Steven Sondheim. The opening number, “Comedy Tonight” gets off to a roaring and hilarious start,

Such is the nature of live theatre but even an area wide power outage that stole the light from the Theatre Arts Building of the Montgomery College Summer Dinner Theatre could not stop the determined cast of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Opening night was tragically cut short when a surprise power outage rendered the campus and some 800 residents in the surrounding area without power for no readily discernible reason.
