Overview

January 17 - 21, 2018

Welcome to the ‘90s — the 1590s — long before the dawn of premium tickets, star casting and reminders to turn off your cell phones. Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom (Tony® nominee Rob McClure and Broadway’s Josh Grisetti) are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard” (Tony® nominee Adam Pascal). When a local soothsayer foretells 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! 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. 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 everything’s better with an exclamation point! From the director of Aladdin and the co-director of The Book of Mormon, SOMETHING ROTTEN! is “Broadway’s big, fat hit!” (New York Post). 

Please note that there is no Tuesday Evening performance. Tuesday Evening Season Ticket Holders will be placed into the Thursday Matinee performance with the option to exchange into another performance during the show run.

SOMETHING ROTTEN! is an EXPLOSION OF MUSICAL JOY!

FRESH, IRREVERENT and HYSTERICAL!

YEP, THIS IS A BLOCKBUSTER! Broadway hits have a white-hot energy: everything clicks into place, the actors are firing on all cylinders — and the audience knows it’s watching something special. NOW, THAT SOMETHING SPECIAL IS SOMETHING ROTTEN!: a DELIRIOUSLY ENTERTAINING new musical comedy that BRINGS DOWN THE HOUSE!
