Hilarious "Something Rotten!" comes to Tulsa

"Something Rotten!" comes to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center May 23-28. Graphic provided.

(Tulsa, OK) Something Rotten! tells the story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom, two playwrights stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star Will Shakespeare. When a soothsayer foretells the next big thing in theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, the Bottom brothers set out to write the world's very first musical. The hilarious new musical opens at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center for eight performances May 23-28.

“A deliriously entertaining new musical comedy that brings down the house!” says the New York Post. The Associated Press calls Something Rotten! “Fresh, irreverent and hysterical!”

The completely original new musical is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book Of Mormon, Aladdin), with music and lyrics by Grammy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Wayne Kirkpatrick and Golden Globe Award and Tony Award nominee Karey Kirkpatrick.

With the most singing, the most dancing and the most gut-busting laughs on Broadway, it's something wonderful... something for everyone... It's Something Rotten! "the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years,” according to Time Out New York.

The book is by Tony Award nominees Karey Kirkpatrick and best-selling author John O’Farrell. Nominated for 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Something Rotten!comes to Tulsa with three principal cast members direct from Broadway: Rob McClure as Nick Bottom, Adam Pascal as Shakespeare and Josh Grisetti as Nigel Bottom.

The award-winning design team of Broadway veterans includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Gregg Barnes (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), Peter Hylenski (sound design), Josh Marquette (hair design), Phil Reno (music direction / conductor), Glen Kelly (arrangements), Larry Hochman (orchestrations), Steve Bebout (associate director) and casting by Telsey + Company/Bethany Knox, CSA.

With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten!is an uproarious dose of pure Broadway fun and an irresistible ode to musicals - those dazzling creations that entertain us, inspire us, and remind us that everything’s better with an exclamation point!
