Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star 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. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz. The outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten!, received several Best Musical nominations and show-stopping standing ovation from audiences… in the beginning of the first act! The show was hailed by Time Out New York as “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years.” Tickets available online April 1 (www.msmt.org) or over the phone (207-725-8769). Runs August 5-22.
