Welcome to the Renaissance and “Broadway’s big, fat hit!” (New York Post). Set in South London circa 1595, this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom—two brothers desperate to get on top by writing a hit play that outdoes the overbearing William Shakespeare. (Maybe you’ve heard of him?) When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing, and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical! With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is “The Producers + Spamalot + The Book of Mormon. Squared!” (New York Magazine).
