Theatre Royal Drury Lane

Welcome to the Renaissance!

Making its UK debut this August and starring Jason ManfordSomething Rotten! is a hilarious mash-up of sixteenth century Shakespeare and twenty-first century musical theatre that delighted Broadway audiences for nearly two years.

It’s the 1590s and brothers Nigel and Nick Bottom are tired of being stuck in the shadow of Shakespeare, the Renaissance Rockstar, and are desperate to beat the Bard once and for all. But how? With the help of a prophet, the lesser-known Nostradamus, the brothers set about writing the world’s first musical – a ridiculous notion where the actors just burst into song. Out of nowhere! And they dance too. For no reason! Absurd.

Created by the team behind Mrs Doubtfire (Hollywood screenwriters Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell and Grammy Award-winning songwriter Wayne Kirkpatrick), Something Rotten! was adored by audience members and critics alike on Broadway, receiving several Best Musical nominations, 10 Tony Award nominations and hailed by Time Out New York as “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years”.

With its hit score performed by the London Musical Theatre Orchestra conducted by Freddie Tapner, this outrageous and hysterical show plays at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane for three performances only.
