‘Something Rotten’ at The Fox April 17-21
The national touring company of “Something Rotten,” which ran for nearly two years on Broadway and received 10 Tony nominations, including one for Best Musical, will be in Atlanta for five days in April.
Set in the 1590s—this energetic musical tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write their own hit play while the “rock star” Shakespeare keeps getting all the hits. 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, Something Rotten! is “The Producers + The Book of Mormon x The Drowsy Chaperone. Squared!” (New York Magazine).
Direct from Broadway, Something Rotten! is a “big, fat hit!” (New York Post).
“Something Rotten” runs April 17-21 at the Fox Theatre.
