Musical ‘Something Rotten’ Heading to Broadway
AP – by MARK KENNEDY
William Shakespeare is heading back to Broadway – but this time he’ll be mocked in a musical.
Tony-winning producer Kevin McCollum said Tuesday that the sweet and goofy new show “Something Rotten!” will play the St. James Theatre in March. Tony winner Casey Nicholaw will direct and choreograph the musical.
The comedy is set during the Renaissance and portrays Shakespeare as an arrogant, rock star playwright. Two brothers desperate to write a hit show in his shadow stumble on the notion of writing the world’s first musical. There’s plenty of tap dancing, clever rhyming and fortune-telling.
“It takes place in 1595 but it’s also about today and theater-going and entertainment and celebrity and status and economics and success and joy and the crucible of creativity,” said McCollum.

That sentence might be the most common warning from social media professionals when considering the challenges of running social media during the holidays.
Sometimes that means thanking your lucky stars IHOP has free Wi-Fi, as Atlanta-based communications consultant Alicia Mitchell did, while on a drive from Atlanta to Oklahoma City with her family over Thanksgiving.

The holidays can be a tricky time for social media marketers. On one hand, the year is winding down and people are checking out physically and mentally. On the other, it can be one of the busiest times, especially if your brand has a product to promote.
“I know that people want to take this time off and want to enjoy the holidays, but unfortunately, social media and digital media is a 24/7 gig and it really doesn’t lend itself to a week out of the office or even two days out of the office,” said Gartner analyst Jennifer Polk.
Fortunately, there are a few ways to make sure the holidays run smoothly, even if unplugging isn’t an option — which it probably isn’t. Our condolences.
