Usurping the BardSomething Rotten is a side-splitting musical comedy taking place in London, England, during The Renaissance when Shakespeare was a living legend. Overshadowed and hampered by the Bard's success, the Bottom brothers, a couple of nobodies, learn from a soothsayer that plays with musical numbers are to be the next big thing in the future. Aiming to steal a bit of Shakespeare's glory for themselves, the Bottom boys set out to write the world's first musical, with hilarious results. Something Rotten was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and received one, for Best Performance by an Actor in Featured Role in a Musical, which went to Christian Borle.
