Revisit Brian d’Arcy James, John Cariani, and more in Something Rotten! on Broadway

The musical comedy opened at the St. James Theatre April 22, 2015.

Something Rotten! opened on Broadway at the St. James Theatre April 22, 2015. Directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, the musical played 32 previews and 708 performances before closing January 1, 2017. The comedy earned 10 Tony Award nominations, winning Best Featured Actor in a Musical for Christian Borle’s performance as Shakespeare.

Featuring music and lyrics by Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick and book by John O’Farrell and Karey Kirkpatrick, Something Rotten! tells the story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom, who are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of 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.
