Combine that with a slave wanting his freedom, a slave wanting to keep things calm, a buyer and seller of courtesans, and the courtesans of course, the virgin, the hero, the warrior who bought the virgin, love potions, all blended together with music by Stephen Sondheim to bring you “Comedy Tonight”.
