Presented with generous support from:


Who needs Shakespeare when you can write the world’s first Broadway musical before there is a Broadway. Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are sick of that show-off bard who is stealing all the audiences and all the attention so Nick goes to see a soothsayer who tells him the real future of theater is acting, singing and dancing all at once! This raucous and outrageous musical comedy was nominated for 9 Tony Awards.


Something Rotten! is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
