From the co-director of "The Book of Mormon" and the producer of "Avenue Q" comes a no-holds-Bard deliciously loopy celebration of the greatest English playwright and the greatest American art form. Music and lyrics by Grammy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Wayne Kirkpatrick and Golden Globe and Tony Award nominee Karey Kirkpatrick and book by Tony Award nominees Karey Kirkpatrick and best-selling author John OFarrell. It's the 1590s in London, and brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play, but they are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star, William Shakespeare. 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 worlds very first MUSICAL. With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, "Something Rotten!" is an uproarious dose of pure Broadway fun and an irresistible ode to musicals those dazzling creations that entertain us, inspire us and remind us that everythings better with an exclamation point!
