About the Show
From the director of Aladdin and the co-director of The Book of Mormon. Set in 1595, this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a hit play. 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, New York Magazine artfully describes Something Rotten! as “The Producers + The Book of Mormon × The Drowsy Chaperone, squared!”

What was clever on Broadway is even better on the road. You may get a leaner set and more streamlined dazzle in the AT&T Performing Arts Center’s presentation at Winspear Opera House than the show that closed in January after being nominated for 10 Tony Awards and winning one (for Christian Borle as Shakespeare in New York), but you won’t stop laughing at this terrific cast as the stakes keep rising and pay off in a far more satisfying conclusion.
