Welcome to the 90’s― the 1590’s ―where brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a show that will rival the Renaissance Rockstar of the day, William Shakespeare. This star-lit, big-hit show tells the story of the Bottom brothers as they attempt to write the world’s very first musical. Nominated for 9 Tonys, SOMETHING ROTTEN! is a hysterical ode to musicals and an uproarious dose of pure Broadway fun. Your sides will ache from laughter.
