Theatrical set for "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum". As my only actual theatrical set, I was delighted to be handed a work I knew and loved from my childhood. I felt like there was a very Warner Brothers/Chuck Jones quality to the music and the comedy of this piece that a naturalistic Roman street scene did not serve, so I went for it in form and color and whimsy.
  Here is a wide shot during the opening musical number. Each colorscape instantly tells the story of each of the three iconic houses.
