Toby Yatso, Matravius Avent, and Jonathan Shew as William Shakespeare, Nigel Bottom, and Nick Bottom

Something Rotten!

May 4, 2022 to June 19, 2022
Mainstage Theatre

Act One: 1 hour and 10 minutes
Intermission: 15 minutes
Act Two: 52 minutes

It’s the musical extravaganza you didn’t know you needed!

Not content to let William Shakespeare get all the attention, the conniving but clueless Bottom brothers hatch a plan to cook up the next big stage hit. After an ill-advised trip to see Nostradamus’s food-obsessed nephew, they risk everything to produce what they believe will be the show of the future: the musical! Combining everything you love about Broadway—big dance numbers, bold costumes, and eye-rolling off-stage antics!
