Northwestern Wirtz Center | Ethel M. Barber Theater
30 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston, IL 60208
Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rockstar known as “The Bard.” When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theater involves singing, dancing, and acting simultaneously, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of the opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self…and all that jazz.
Admission Fee $6.00 – $25.00.
