The completely original new musical, Something Rotten! premiers at Segerstrom Center for the Arts November 7 – 19, 2017. Nominated for 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Something Rotten! comes to Costa Mesa with three principal cast members direct from Broadway: Rob McClure as Nick Bottom, Adam Pascal as Shakespeare and Josh Grisetti as Nigel Bottom.
This hilarious new musical comedy tells the story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom, two playwrights stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star Will Shakespeare. When a soothsayer foretells the next big thing in theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, the Bottom brothers set out to write the world’s very first MUSICAL!
With the most singing, the most dancing and the most gut-busting laughs on Broadway, it’s something wonderful… something for everyone…it’s Something Rotten!, “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years!” – Time Out New York.
With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is an uproarious dose of pure Broadway fun and an irresistible ode to musicals — those dazzling creations that entertain us, inspire us, and remind us that everything’s better with an exclamation point!
