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.
