Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are writing their way through the Renaissance, but are stuck in the shadow of famed playwright William Shakespeare. Sick and tired of failure, Nick visits a less-than-reputable soothsayer, who predicts that musicals will be the next big thing in theatre! The Bottom Brothers scramble to write the world’s first musical while fighting social norms, family struggles, and “The Bard” himself. Will opening night be an over-easy success or a rotten mess?
This musical has been described as “irreverent,” “over-the-top,” “outrageous,” and “deliciously hysterical.” SOMETHING ROTTEN! is all that and more, including adult situations and language. Rated PG-13.
Run Time: 2 hours 25 minutes including intermission.
SOMETHING ROTTEN! Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com
