In addition to the presentation of classic American musical theatre, The Marriott Theatre has become a driving force in the development of original and re-thought musicals.

The Marriott Theatre, a founding member of the National Alliance for Musical Theatre, assists and fosters artists in creating new works for the Marriott stage. The result has been a string of American and World Premieres that have brought the national press and the country's attention to Lincolnshire. The 1989 production of MATADOR which subsequently played London's West End; the World Premiere of ANNIE WARBUCKS following a national tour opened off-Broadway in New York to rave reviews; World Premiere productions of PHANTOM OF THE COUNTRY PALACE, GROVERS CORNERS, HISTORY LOVES COMPANY, QUEEN OF THE STARDUST BALLROOM, PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED, ONCE UPON A TIME IN NEW JERSEY, THE BOWERY BOYS, FOR THE BOYS, and HERO.

From Our Blog
Something Rotten is “Broadway’s big, fat hit!” created by Grammy Award-winning songwriter Wayne Kirkpatrick, and successful screenwriters Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell. Set in 1595, the story follows the Bottom brothers, Nick and Nigel, who struggle to find success in the theatrical world but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard.” Something Rotten features large song and dance numbers, and a cast of over-the-top characters, each given a special chance to shine. It first previewed at the St. James Theatre on March 23, 2015, and officially opened on Broadway on April 22, 2015. The musical received a show-stopping standing ovation from audiences throughout its Broadway run. The musical then launched a U.S. national tour with previews at the Proctors theatre in New York before its official opening at the Boston Opera House on January 17, 2017. It was nominated for 10 Tony awards, including Best Musical, and the cast album received a nomination for the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.

Do not miss the chance to experience this history-twisting musical live.
