"Something Rotten" was set to open in March 2020 in Palatine. After making it through the final dress rehearsal, the show was shut down due to COVID. 18 months later this sensational musical is up and running at Cutting Hall in Palatine through October 24, 2021.


The reviews are in and the following has been said about Rachel. "Rachel Carreras is Bea, Nick’s loving and supportive wife, and boy, can that girl sing – she’s a Broadway belter. She also has a comforting, expressive face. Both Carreras and McCormack are strong, vibrant actresses and as equally charismatic as their male counterparts."
