SOMETHING ROTTEN! at New Line Theatre

New Line Theatre Uploaded by Scott

It’s Shakespeare’s London. Or it’s Steven Spielberg’s Hollywood. Or is it BOTH? This smart, subversive musical comedy mashes up the crass commercialism of today’s Hollywood with the people and plays of Shakespeare’s London, to ask fascinating, funny questions about commercial success, popular success, artistic success, and personal success. And beneath the rapid-fire Shakespeare jokes, the show comically deconstructs itself and musical theatre as an art form, exploring what makes musicals tick and why we love them. The show was nominated for ten Tonys, nine Drama Desk Awards, and twelve Outer Critics Circle Awards.
