Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten! - the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years!
Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as "The Bard." When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theater involves something called a musical with singing, dancing, and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel attempt to outdo Shakespeare and write the world’s very first musical. Amidst the hysterical mayhem that ensues, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, but with jazz hands!
