Members of Alpha Chi Omega attended the FSchool of Theatre at Florida State University: Something Rotten with Music by Karey Kirkpatrick & Wayne Kirkpatrick
Book by Karey Kirkpatrick & John O’Farrell. The event took place at the University Fallon Theatre. Members met at the chapter house and walked to the event together.
Something Rotten is a saga of artistic rivalry and camaraderie over-stuffed with in-jokes for Broadway fans. It premiered at the St. James Theatre in 2015 starring Christian Borle, Brian D’Arcy James, and John Cariani after a twenty-year development journey.
Welcome to the Renaissance, where a leather-clad wordsmith with swiveling hips is rocking London: Shakespeare! Meanwhile, down-on-their-luck playwrights, Nick and Nigel Bottom can’t summon a single sonnet. Then, when Nostradamus himself foretells “the future of theatre”, the Bottom brothers hatch a plan to rise to the top. Hilarity ensues in this campy lampoon of England’s first-ever musical.
