WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Johann Gutenberg invented the printing press in 1450, so Doug Simon and Bud Davenport wrote a musical about him. They don't have a cast, a budget, or a producer... but they have a dream! Doug and Bud are two dolts who have set-out to musicalize quite possibly the least musical event in history -- the invention of the printing press. As the third piece of Strawberry Theatre Workshop's Biograph series, Gutenberg! The Musical! is a disastrously inaccurate, hopelessly over-ambitious, and hilariously incompetent backers' audition for their new project. It's the true story of Gutenberg, an evil Monk, and a beautiful wench named Helvetica... and Doug and Bud are gonna perform the crap out of it for Broadway producers that they think are in the audience.
