Something Rotten Review
Bethany Schuler

Connect with AARP Wisconsin staff, volunteers and other members and receive a special price for the Opening Night performances of  SOMETHING ROTTEN! on Tuesday, October 16 and Thursday, October 18 at 7:30 p.m. both nights at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, 929 N. Water St., Milwaukee.

Thursday will feature a cast Q&A just for our AARP members and their guests. This will take place immediately following the performance in the front rows of Uihlein Hall.

SOMETHING ROTTEN! is “Broadway’s big, fat hit!” ( New York Post). Set in 1595, this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a hit play.

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 “ The Producers Spamalot +  The Book of Mormon. Squared!” ( New York Magazine).

AARP members and their guests will enjoy discounts off full-priced tickets and handling fees for these performances. You can obtain your discounted tickets online at or by calling 414-273-7121 ext. 210 or 213. Discount purchases can be made using the discount code  FUN50.
