Something Rotten!'s Christian Borle and Brian d'Arcy James Have a 16th-Century Face-Off on Broadway
Luckily, the cast promises you won't have to brush up on your Shakespeare to enjoy the new musical satire.
Beginning March 23, Shakespeare haters will finally have a Broadway outlet for their long-suppressed frustrations in the brand-new musical comedy Something Rotten!. Coming to the St. James Theatre, Tony winner Christian Borle stars as the pompous Bard — a hip-shaking "rock star of 1595" — whom Nick Bottom (played by Brian d'Arcy James) finds totally overrated. Take a look as TheaterMania chats with the cast about the production, which they modestly anticipate to be "the best musical you've ever seen."
