Something Rotten! Will Feature Broadway Stars

Something Rotten! will be making its Northwest Premiere (finally) this fall, and we couldn’t be more pleased to announce three of the stars of the show, all of whom are reprising their roles on tour after portraying these same characters in the Broadway production!

Broadway’s Rob McClure plays older Bottom brother, Nick Bottom. He received Tony, Drama League, Astaire and Outer Critics nominations, and won Theatre World and Clive Barnes awards for the title role in Chaplin: The Musical. He’s been seen on Broadway, including in Something Rotten!, as well as numerous appearances on film and television. (McClure is also taking the stage with his real-life wife, his “right hand man,” Maggie Lakis – he plays her husband in the show!)

Josh Grisetti is playing younger brother Nigel Bottom. His Broadway credits include Something Rotten!It Shoulda Been You and Broadway Bound. His Off-Broadway credits include Enter Laughing, Rent, Peter & the Starcatcher and more. Follow Josh on Twitter and Instagram!

And last but certainly not least, Adam Pascal is stepping into potentially the biggest shoes in the history of theater – those of William Shakespeare. Pascal will be familiar to folks as the original Roger Davis in the Off-Broadway, Broadway and London productions of Rent. (He also reprised his role in the 2005 film.) He was the original Radames in Broadway’s Aida, starred as the Emcee in Roundabout’s Broadway production of Cabaret, Huey Calhoun in Broadway’s Memphis and Billy Flynn in Broadway’s Chicago. Most recently, he was seen as Chad in Broadway’s Disaster.

Check out this video of Adam Pascal as rock star Renaissance man William Shakespeare in “Will Power.”
