Who needs Shakespeare when you can write the world’s first Broadway musical before there is a Broadway? Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are sick of that show-off bard who is stealing all the audiences and all the attention so Nick goes to see a soothsayer who tells him the real future of theater is acting, singing and dancing all at once! This raucous and outrageous musical comedy was nominated for 9 Tony Awards.
The cast features Lukas Poost making his Cape Rep debut, as playwright Nick Bottom with Cape Rep Company members Trish LaRose as Beatrice, Noah Pelty as Nigel Bottom, Ashlyn Inman as Portia, Owain Rhys Davies as Shakespeare, Jared Hagan as Nostradamus and Richard Jay Sullivan as Brother Jeremiah and an incredible ensemble lead by Donte Wilder as the Minstrel with Anthony Teixeira, LeVane Harrington, Alex John Johnson, Elizabeth McGuire and Samantha Ross.
