Australasian Premiere

It’s 1595 London, and all the world’s a stage!

Something Rotten! follows playwrights Nick and Nigel Bottom as they struggle to find success in the shadow of rockstar-writer William Shakespeare. Thanks to the insight of a cunning soothsayer, Nick learns that ‘the next big thing’ includes acting, singing and dancing, and so the Bottom Brothers set out to write the world’s first musical.

Something Rotten! is witty, high energy and full of big musical numbers in which Broadway and the Bard hilariously collide.

“Broadway’s funniest, splashiest, slap-happiest musical comedy in at least 400 years...”
