Gutenberg! The Musical!

by Scott Brown & Anthony King
Directed by Evan Hoffmann

Bud and Doug have a dream!

They have written (what they are pretty sure) is the next smash Broadway musical! It’s about Johann Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press, and it features all the drama, spectacle, and pizzazz that you would expect from hits like Les Miserables or The Lion King. The only catch is that they need someone to produce the show. So in the meantime, these two overly enthusiastic writers are ready to sing ALL the songs and play ALL the parts in this crass historical musical epic themselves.

Off Broadway, “Gutenberg! The Musical!” garnered nominations for the 2007 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical, the 2007 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical; and its authors were nominated for the 2007 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical.

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French.
