Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rockstar 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!
The Erie Playhouse is excited to be one of the first community theatres in the nation to bring Something Rotten! to the stage!!! One of the funniest musicals to come out of Broadway in years, there is hardly time to recover from the last burst of hysterics or applause before you'll find yourself laughing out loud again. Fans of history and theater alike will remain enthralled with the innumerable references to Shakespeare’s most infamous quotes and dozens of musical theater references. The musical is over-the-top, flashy and full of energy, keeping the audience engaged throughout each of the show’s 19 lively numbers and definitely not one to miss!
