BROADWAY’S BIG FAT HIT “SOMETHING ROTTEN”
COMING TO THE BROWARD CENTER
This hilarious play tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a hit play. When faced with trying to recreate a new play, Nick and Nigel Bottom are at a loss, but when a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical.
With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, "Something Rotten" is from the same director-choreographer behind the decade’s biggest smash, The Book of Mormon. It promises to be a celebration of musical theatre, with music and lyrics by Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick, another brotherly duo who’ve worked with Eric Clapton and on films such as “Chicken Run.”
But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, in the Broward Center’s Au-Rene Theatre, from March 21-April 2, 2017 the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self..and all that jazz.
“Something Rotten” has won the 2015 Tony Award and most every other award available. Tickets are $49 to $57 at the Center’s box office located at 201 S.W. Fifth Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. For show times and other information call 954-462-0222. *Something Rotten is not suitable for children. Under age of four not permitted.
PARKER PLAYHOUSE PRESENTS GRAMMY-AWARD
WINNING NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND LIVE
Members of the Nitty Gritty Band are celebrating their 50th together the only way they know how--by making music. The iconic and profoundly influential Grammy-Award-winners have been cited as the catalyst for an entire movement in Country Rock and American Music.
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band was formed in Southern California in 1966, and four years later, they scored one of their biggest hits, a Jerry Jeff Walker song called “Mr. Bojangles.” By 1971, however the group had soured on Los Angeles and decided to move to Colorado, where they had performed to enthusiastic audiences.
Several members settled in Aspen, and the band became regulars at the Aspen Inn, at the base of Aspen Mountain. Founding member John McEuen, and band, members of the Music Hall of Fame, believe things would not have happened so well if they had not been in Colorado. He now lives in Sarasota, Florida.
Tickets for the Band's anniversary performance on March 28, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. are $37.75- $57.75 at the Playhouse Box Office, in person, or call 954-462-0222. Parker Playhouse is located at 707 N .E. 8th Street, For Lauderdale.
