The Broadway musical concluded its run on the Great White Way on Jan. 1, 2017, after 742 performances. In an unusual move, three leads from that production — Rob McClure, Adam Pascal and Josh Grisetti — will reprise their roles on the road tour. The show is set in 1595 England and follows two brothers, Nick and Nigel Bottom (McClure and Grisetti, respectively), who are in a theatric throwdown with no less than William Shakespeare (Pascal). Along the way, “Something Rotten!” manages to spoof just about every major musical over the past 50 years, from “South Pacific” to “Wicked.”
