Something Rotten

Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten. Created by Grammy Award-winning songwriter Wayne Kirkpatrick and successful screenwriters Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell, Something Rotten was lauded by audience members and critics alike, receiving several Best Musical nominations and hailed by Time Out New York as “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years.”

Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stick in the shadow of the 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.
