Audition Description

Set in the 1590's, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as "The Bard." 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. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz. Something Rotten received several Best Musical nominations and was hailed by Time Out New York as "the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years".

Got first professtional acting job within one day of signing up.. I just wanted to say thank you so much to Explore Talent. You guys have been wonderful! I have been a member since October. Within one day of signing up I got my first professional acting job in a theatre company outside of Washington DC called The Starving Artist Theatre which made me eligible for an artist grant from the government. Also, I am currently acting with a second company, Element Productions, in Washington DC right now! I could not have found these jobs without Explore! Everyone there has been so helpful; and I find this website easy and extremely essential for anyone starting in the business.
