Something Rotten! 's Brad Oscar Dons Wild Wig, Beard and Makeup to Become Nostradamus
Brad Oscar plays Thomas Nostradamus, a soothsayer who inspires the Bottom brothers (played by Brian d’Arcy James and John Cariani) to create the world's first musical in the Broadway hit Something Rotten! For the role, Oscar dons an over-the-top wig, facial hair and extra-bold makeup that illuminate the visuals of his larger-than-life character. In this exclusive backstage peek, Oscar ran through his pre-show ritual that obviously includes wig and makeup, but also includes some televised baseball and thoughts about his biggest fan—and her special tribute to him at BroadwayCon.
