The completely original new musical SOMETHING ROTTEN!, directed and choreographed by Tony® Award winner Casey Nicholaw (THE BOOK OF MORMON, ALADDIN), with music and lyrics by GRAMMY® Award winner and Tony® Award nominee Wayne Kirkpatrick and Golden Globe Award and Tony® Award nominee Karey Kirkpatrick and a book by Tony® Award nominees Karey Kirkpatrick and best-selling author John O’Farrell, opens at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts Aug. 8 – 13, 2017.

Nominated for 10 Tony® Awards including “Best Musical,” SOMETHING ROTTEN! comes to Las Vegas with three principal cast members directly from Broadway: Rob McClure as “Nick Bottom,” Adam Pascal as “Shakespeare” and Josh Grisetti as “Nigel Bottom.” The touring cast also features Maggie Lakis as “Bea,” Blake Hammond as “Nostradamus,” Autumn Hurlbert as “Portia,” Scott Cote as “Brother Jeremiah” and Jeff Brooks as “Shylock.”
The award-winning design team of Broadway veterans includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Gregg Barnes (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), Peter Hylenski (sound design), Josh Marquette (hair design), Phil Reno (music direction/conductor), Glen Kelly (arrangements), Larry Hochman (orchestrations), Steve Bebout (associate director) and casting by Telsey + Company/Bethany Knox, CSA.
From the director of ALADDIN, co-director of THE BOOK OF MORMON and the producer of RENT, AVENUE Q and IN THE HEIGHTS, this hilarious new musical comedy tells the story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom, two playwrights stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rockstar Will Shakespeare. When a soothsayer foretells the next big thing in theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, the Bottom brothers set out to write the world’s very first MUSICAL! With the most singing, the most dancing and the most gut-busting laughs on Broadway, it’s something wonderful… something for everyone… It’s SOMETHING ROTTEN! – “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years” (Time Out New York)!
With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, SOMETHING ROTTEN! is an uproarious dose of pure Broadway fun and an irresistible ode to musicals — those dazzling creations that entertain us, inspire us and remind us that everything’s better with an exclamation point!
