While it's compared to shows such as The ProducersSpamalot and The Book of MormonSomething Rotten! makes its own humorous impressions on audiences who have embraced the story and the music. Chicagoans can experience the smash hit during its run at the Oriental Theatre from July 11 through July 23. Its 10 Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, are indications of the production's appeal. The hilarity begins when brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are at their wits' end to write a hit play but can't overcome the appeal of a Renaissance megastar who gets all of the attention. When a local visionary gives them a tip that the future of theatre will include singing, dancing and acting at the same time, the brothers excitedly begin to write the world's first musical. For more information and tickets to the award-winning show, go to
