“A day in the life of Pseudolus – a liar, a blackmailer, and a slave who’ll stop at nothing to win his freedom. A brazen marriage of American burlesque to Plautus, the high priest of low comedy.
Slave-in-chief! I wonder how many slaves-in-chief have a master in the tub, a house full of courtesans and a virgin on the roof. “
