Program in Theater senior Jack Busche directs his new English translation of the classic Roman comedy Miles Gloriosus by Plautus, featuring senior Justin Ramos in the lead role of Palaestrio, in a performative staging that emphasizes the play’s physical comedy. Miles Gloriosus was an inspiration for the classic musical comedy A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.
An audience talkback led by Associate Professor Yelena Baraz of the Classics Department will follow the November 30 performance.
