w St. James Theatre
Welcome to the ‘90s — the 1590s — long before the dawn of premium tickets, star casting and reminders to turn off your cell phones. Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rockstar known as “The Bard.”
When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical! But in the middle the scandalous excitement of Opening Night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self.
2 hours, 30 minutes incl intermission
