Show Page - English

Something Rotten! is “Broadway’s new, big fat hit!" (New York Post). The Associated Press calls it "fresh, hysterical and irreverent," and Time Out New York cheers, " Something Rotten! is the funniest musical in at least 400 years!

”From the director of Aladdin and the co-director of The Book of Mormon comes the "ingenious and irresistible" (Variety) story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rockstar known as “The Bard". When a local soothsayer foretells that 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!

With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is an irresistible ode to musicals – and it's the one Broadway show that "will leave you screaming for more!" (New York Observer). The New York Post raves, "Yep, this is a blockbuster. Something Rotten! brings down the house!"

I received rave reviews from all of my high school students! They loved it and laughed throughout the entire performance - the best show they have seen yet!

I thought it was a great show. I was hooked from the first scene to the last. I thought it was hilarious, creative, and done exceptionally well. My wife and I bought the CD and my kids ask to listen to it on every car trip. I am hoping it will inspire them when they take English literature in High School.
