The critically acclaimed musical comedy by Scott Brown and Anthony King, Gutenberg! The Musical! makes its Chicago premiere. Obie Award winning director Alex Timbers and co-director Ian Unterman will lead the creative team in Chicago, with musical direction by T.O. Sterrett.
In this hilarious two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring writers performs a backers' audition for their new project -- a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg, the evil monk who tries to stop him, and the beautiful woman who loves him. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing sixteen songs and play over 30 roles in the outrageous play within a play. The duo hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract, fulfilling their bright-eyed, and ill-advised, dreams.
