News   What Does a First Night On Broadway Look Like? See a Thrilled Something Rotten! Cast Take Their First Bows! Broadway welcomed a brand-new, original musical comedy March 23 when Something Rotten!, starring Christian Borle and Brian d'Arcy James, took its first curtain call at the St. James Theatre.

The new musical set during Shakespeare's time — in which two brothers, desperate to write a hit play of their own in Shakespeare's shadow, end up creating the next big thing, a musical – stars Borle (Peter and the Starcatcher, Legally Blonde, Little Me, "Smash") and d'Arcy James (Shrek, Next to Normal, Titanic, "Smash") as Shakespeare and Nick Bottom, respectively.

Tony Award-winning Aladdin and The Book of Mormon director-choreographer Casey Nicholaw helms the production that will officially open April 22. Something Rotten! has music and lyrics by Wayne Kirkpatrick and Karey Kirkpatrick.
