Something Rotten & Michael James Scott say Welcome to the Tony Race!

The cast of Something Rotten recently took time away from performances at the St. James Theatre to hit the studio and record “Welcome to the Tony Race.” The catchy tune name-drops several Tony-nominated actors, actresses and productions as it invites audiences to 2015’s biggest evening on Broadway. Set to the melody of one of the show’s hit songs, “Welcome to the Renaissance,” this revised tune features actor Michael James Scott, as does the original.

Scott plays the Minstrel in Something Rotten, a musical about two brothers in the 1590s who attempt to outdo Shakespeare by writing the world’s first musical. Nominated for an impressive 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the cast of Something Rotten will be performing during the Tony Awards this Sunday, June 7. But, for now, enjoy their little ditty that is sure to get you excited for the telecast that begins at 8pm eastern.
