Something Rotten is a bawdy love letter to theater, a musical that pays tribute (and makes fun of) all the groundbreaking musicals before it, and a play that both acknowledges the omnipresence and brilliance of Shakespeare and understands that he can be a bit tiresome. The show examines the trials and travails of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two of Shakespeare’s contemporaries who just can’t seem to get ahead, in no small part because of the Bard’s corner on the theatrical marketplace. They enlist Nostradamus for some insight that may help them upset Shakespeare’s reign – only to find themselves producing a ridiculous paean to breakfast food, thanks to a little soothsaying misstep. The show is rambunctious, chock-full of double entendres and bursting at the seams with high-energy antics. Shows run from Tuesday, June 13, through Sunday, June 25, at the Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $25 to $200 at tickets.attpac.org.
