With 10 Tony® nominations including Best Musical, Something Rotten! is a big, fat hit! - New York Post. Set in the  90s – the 1590s – this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom (Tony®  nominee Rob McClure and Broadway’s Josh Grisetti), two brothers who are desperate to write their own hit play while the "rock star" Shakespeare (Tony® nominee Adam Pascal) keeps getting all the hits. 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! With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is The Producers  + Spamalot + The Book of Mormon. Squared! -New York Magazine

RUNNING TIME: 2 hours and 20 minutes, including intermission

RECOMMENDED AGES: Appropriate for ages 8+

PRODUCTION ELEMENTS: Flash Lightning, Haze, and Fog
