Shakespeare goes Broadway in this 2015 Tony Award-winning spectacle that stops in Sacramento for its first national tour. Set in Elizabethan England, Something Rotten! follows the playwriting sibling duo Nick and Nigel Bottom, who can’t seem to catch a break with Bill Shakespeare cranking out crowd-pleasers. (Rent veteran Adam Pascal plays the Bard, imagined here as a moody, writhing rock star.) A soothsayer shares a secret with the brothers—the future of theater is singing and dancing—so they set out to write the first-ever musical. Songs include the soft-shoe ditty “Welcome to the Renaissance,” a perky, uptempo number called “The Black Death” and the aptly named powerhouse “A Musical.”
