“The Producers + Spamalot + The Book of Mormon. Squared!” – New York Magazine
Welcome to the Renaissance! SOMETHING ROTTEN! is “Broadway’s 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 but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard.” 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! But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz.
With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, SOMETHING ROTTEN! is “The Funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years!” (Time Out New York).
SOMETHING ROTTEN runs 2 hours 35 minutes with one 15 minute intermission.
