Something Rotten!

About This Event

Nick and Nigel Bottom 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. Something Rotten has been lauded by audience members and critics worldwide, receiving several Best Musical nominations and hailed by Time Out New York as "the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years".   

Please note: this performance is not recommended for children under the age of 7.
