Something Rotten This Way Comes .... to Stratford's Festival Theatre


Upon arriving at Stratford's Festival Theatre I knew right away there was something special about Something Rotten!  The entrance screens had images from the show and I was excited to enter the theatre.

Unlike La Cage aux Folles and the upcoming Wendy and Peter Pan, I knew very little about Something Rotten! other than that two brothers attempt to write a play that will rival the Renaissance Rockstar Himself, William Shakespeare.


Truth be told, that is the best way to approach this show.  The less you know, the more surprised you will be. Your eyes will be glued to the stage to see if these woe-full brothers are able to pull off their big production and tarnish the shine of Shakespeare. Your ears will be listing for double entendres, sarcastic comments and snappy songs, and your nose will be ready to sniff out Something Rotten!

The Bottom brothers, two struggling playwrights in Renaissance London, need a hit. That’s easier said than done when your chief competition is local rockstar William Shakespeare.
