About this show

In 1595, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom dream of writing a hit play, but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance writer/rock star William Shakespeare himself. When a local soothsayer foretells the future of theatre - a dazzling mix of singing, dancing and acting at the same time - the pair set out to write the world's first MUSICAL! Forsaking all in their bid for fame, and amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom brothers finally realise that real success means being true to thine own self... and all that jazz.
