From the co-director of The Book of Mormon and the producer of Avenue Q come something original, something fresh... Something Rotten!, a world-premiere musical comedy about the musical comedy that started it all. Welcome to the 1590 s, long before the dawn of premium tickets, star casting, and reminders to turn off your cell phones. Brothers Nick (Brian d Arcy James) and Nigel Bottom (John Cariani) are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rockstar known as The Bard (Christian Borle). When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theater involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world s very first MUSICAL! But 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.
