Broadway's Something Rotten! has announced a new partnership with the Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel and American Airlines to give one Something Rotten! fan a chance to attend the new Broadway musical's world premiere on April 22 at the St. James Theatre.

On March 16 through March 31, those who follow @RottenTomatoes on Twitter will have a chance to enter the sweepstakes. The winner will receive two tickets and VIP treatment for the opening night production and after-party as well as air transportation provided by American Airlines and hotel accommodations.

Written by Wayne Kirkpatrick, Karey Kirkpatrick, and John O'Farrell, with direction by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw, Something Rotten! is set in 1590s England and follows Nick and Nigel Bottom, a pair of playwriting brothers who are stuck in the shadow of William Shakespeare. When they visit a local soothsayer, the brothers are inspired to write the world's first musical.

The show stars Tony Award winner Christian Borle, Tony nominees Brian d'Arcy James, John Cariani, Brad Oscar, and Brooks Ashmanskas, Heidi Blickenstaff, Kate Reinders, Peter Bartlett, Gerry Vichi, and Michael James Scott.
