Something Rotten! is Broadways big, fat hit! (New York Post). Set in 1595, this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a hit play in the shadow of the Renaissances biggest playwright, William Shakespeare. 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 worlds very first MUSICAL! With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is Broadways funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years! (Time Out New York).
