Fort Wayne Civic Theatre: Something Rotten!
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten! Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard.” When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing, and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz.
Something Rotten! is hailed as “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years”. Something Rotten! features large song and dance numbers, and a wacky cast of over-the-top characters, each given their own special moment in the show to shine. It’s become clear that “nothing’s as amazing as a musical,” so don’t miss your chance to experience this history-twisting tale!
