You're sure to have a good time when you see Broadway's Something Rotten!
This "big, fat hit" (New York Post
) is set in the '90s -- the 1590s, that is -- and tells the hilarious story of Nick and Nigel Bottom (Tony nominee Rob McClure and Broadway's Josh Grisetti), two brothers desperate to write their own hit play while the "rock star" Shakespeare (Tony nominee Adam Pascal) keeps getting all the hits. 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. With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten!
is "The Producers
plus The Book of Mormon
. Squared!" (New York Magazine
). Don't miss this dazzling show when it makes its way to the Mead Theate at Schuster Performing Arts Center in Dayton.
