Something Rotten! - US Tour
The musical comedy, according to press notes, â€œtells the story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom, two playwrights stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rockstar 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!â€
Producer Kevin McCollum announced that the national tour of the Tony-nominated musical Something Rotten!, which continues at Broadway's St. James Theatre, will launch January 17-29, 2017, at the Boston Opera House following a preview period at Proctors in Schenectady, NY.
Directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw, Something Rotten! has music and lyrics by Grammy Award winner Wayne Kirkpatrick and Golden Globe Award nominee Karey Kirkpatrick and a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and author John O'Farrell.

In 1848, a Lutheran scholar named Samuel Mosheim Schmucker first raised the question as to how an uneducated and untraveled man such as William Shakespeare could have penned 37 plays and 154 sonnets that dealt with subjects that he should have no knowledge of. Since then many people have cast their doubts about the identity of the Bard, including Mark Twain and Sigmund Freud. Most recently, with a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O'Farrell and music and lyrics by Karey and Wayne Kirkpatrick, the Tony-nominated Something Rotten! hilariously takes a look at Shakespeare as a plagiarist.
