Something Rotten!

On Tuesday evening we saw the musical "Something Rotten!" (2015) at the St. James Theatre. It was a very enjoyable show. Illustrations for the production are by Peter de Sève. I've collected a few of them here.

Originally, the Playbills were in color. They have since been redesigned for black and white. That can't be a good sign.

Ten Tony nominations:

Christian Borle won the 2015 Tony Award for Best Featured Actor. He plays Shakespeare.

Note:  Of course this blog covers Broadway. What won't I do for you?

The talented Peter de Sève has been mentioned here in the context of the 1996 production of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." I admit it's not much, but then what does your blog have to say about him?
