PRESS RELEASE: SOMETHING ROTTEN! HITS THE WATERFRONT STAGE
The team that brought the hit musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert to the Waterfront stage is back with a new “tour de farce”! The hit musical SOMETHING ROTTEN!
Previewing March 22 and 23, with a grand opening on Thursday March 26 and playing Tuesday through Saturdays through April 16, this is one musical you will not want to miss. To grab tickets go to www.waterfrontplayhouse.org or call 305-294-5015.
Now, for those of you unfamiliar with “Something Rotten!”, here is what it is all about. It is in the Renaissance of England and William Shakespeare (the phenomenal Bruce Moore) is a “rock star”. His works are loved by all except the Bottom brothers, Nick (Brian Robinson, making his Key West debut) and Nigel (the always hysterical Arthur Crocker) who must write a new play to stay ahead of the money lenders they owe. Enter Nostradamus who sees into the future and tells Nick that they can beat Shakespeare to the punch by writing a musical! Filled with gorgeous costumes, fabulous musical numbers (who doesn’t like a good tap dance) and a hilarious plot line, be prepared for a side-splitting evening in the theatre!
Directed by Waterfront Artistic Director Tom Thayer, choreography by Carolyn Cooper, design by Michael Boyer, musical direction by Michael Fauss, lighting design by Kim Hanson, costumes designed by Costume World and stage managed by Trish Manley, Something Rotten! is written by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell with music and lyrics by Karey and Wayne Kirkpatrick.
The cast includes Canter O’May (last seen in the Waterfront’s All is Calm) as Nostradamus, Alexandra Zeto (making her Waterfront debut) as Bea, Sarah Thorn (making her debut) as Portia, Karl Stahl (last seen at the Waterfront in 1776) as Reverend Jeremiah, Xavier McKnight, fresh off the tour of How the Grinch Stole Christmas as the Minstrel, John McDonald, recently seen as Professor Plum in the hit comedy Clue, as Shylock, Ross Pipkin, last seen as Colonel Mustard in Clue, as Lord Clapham and Chris Homberg, Mathais Maloff, J. Michael Wright, Andrew Theede, Carolyn Cooper, Jillian Todd, Belle Jampol and Barbara Mundy as the ensemble.

The Award winning Waterfront Playhouse on Mallory Square, is please to announce their On The Edge series. "With the theatre located On The Edge of the water as well as most productions chosen and designed to be performed On The Edge of the stage, it seemed like a winning title", said Managing Artistic Director Tom Thayer. Although a few productions, such as the upcoming musical The Rocky Horror Show will have more production value, the majority of productions, such as Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, The Informer, Bash, and Trunk Material 2 are created and designed to be performed simply.
