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. logo

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."
