Gutenburg! The Musical
by Anthony King & Scott Brown
Sept. 7 - 22, 2018

This laugh-out-loud two man musical spoof about two aspiring playwrights performing a backer’s audition version of their big splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenburg was an Off-Broadway smash in 2007 and has maintained a feverish cult-following since. A What If? kind-of-musical if there ever was one!
