But enough about that poser, there's a new crack duo in town and they're here to shake up Shakespeare! Behold the brothers Bottom, the creators of THE MUSICAL! Stars Brian d'Arcy James as Nick Bottom and Christian Borle, winner of the 2015 Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his take on the rock star wordsmith!

The St. James Theatre is a Broadway theatre which is located at 246 W. 44th St. in New York City. It was opened in 1927 as The Erlanger, named after Abraham L. Erlanger who built the theater. After Erlanger's death in 1930, the Astor family took over the building and renamed it the St. James Theatre. The theatre was passed on to different owners several times, until 1970 when the current owners James H. Binger and his wife took over and formed the Jujamcyn Theaters, of which it is part of today.
