'Something Rotten!' Broadway Review: A Musical That Wonders How Do You Solve a Problem Like Ophelia?

'Something Rotten!' Broadway Review: A Musical That Wonders How Do You Solve a Problem Like Ophelia?

BROADWAY REVIEW

 If nothing succeeds like excess, then the new musical “Something Rotten!” shapes up to be a howling Broadway smash at the St. James Theater.

A clever idea has been blown up to epic proportions by director-choreographer Casey Nicholaw and his collaborators, who throw everything in the show-biz book into their campy musical comedy caper set in London back in Tudor times.

Shakespeare (Christian Borle) is the town’s raging rock god, much to the chagrin of the Bottom brothers Nick (Brian d’Arcy James) and Nigel (John Cariani), a rival team of dramatists. The desperate Nick calls on a soothsayer (Brad Oscar) to scout out what will be the hot new theatrical trend.
