Something Hysterical! Something Spectacular! Something Sensational! SOMETHING ROTTEN  Photo Something Hysterical! Something Spectacular! Something Sensational! SOMETHING ROTTEN At The McCallum
by David Green - Mar 19, 2019

The McCallum Theatre presents Something Rotten! for five performances, Friday, April 5, through Sunday, April 7. This hilarious musical comedy tells the story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom, two playwrights stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star Will Shakespeare. When a soothsayer foretells the next big thing in theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, the Bottom brothers set out to write the world's very first musical! With the most singing, the most dancing, and the most gut-busting laughs on Broadway, it's something wonderful and something for everyone.

It's an increasing rarity among Broadway musicals: a completely original work not based on a movie, play, book or other source material. With 10 Tony nominations including Best Musical, Something Rotten! is a "fresh, irreverent and hysterical" musical (Associated Press) coming to the Harris Center for five performances.

Something Rotten! roared into town this week. And judging from the high-energy opening night, audiences won't be lifting their noses at this hybrid Shakespeare/Musical production. The title itself is a quotation from one of Shakespeare's best-known plays and includes the ubiquitous use of exclamation points in titles of musicals. Additionally, this particular quote points to some of the plot points in the storyline.
