Something’s up with ‘Something Rotten’

From Misha Berson, theater critic:

The theatrical news website playbill.com has reported that Tony Award-winning actor Christian Borle (“Peter and the Starcatcher,” “Smash”) played the character of Shakespeare in a private industry  workshop of the new musical “Something Rotten!” held recently in New York City.

“Something Rotten!” is set in the sphere of Elizabethan drama and will have its world premiere next spring at the 5th Avenue Theatre under the direction of Casey Nicholaw (“Aladdin,” “The Book of Mormon”).  The New York workshop ensemble also included Tony nominees Brian d’Arcy James (“Shrek”) and John Cariani (who play young playwright rivals of Shakespeare),  well as Seattle performers Allen Fitzpatrick, Jeff Steitzer and Taryn Darr.

When contacted for comment, 5th Avenue Theatre publicist Bridget Summers said she could not confirm who would appear in the Seattle run of the show (April 29-May 24, 2015).   She said casting had not yet been established, and will be announced at a later date.
