GUTENBERG! THE MUSICAL!

The hilariously, knee slappingly funny, musical-spoof about the dream of Bud and Doug and their next (cross your fingers) smash Broadway musical makes its way to Perth!

Bud and Doug, a pair of aspiring playwrights, perform a backers’ audition for their new project – a big, splashy musical about Johann Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press!

With relentless enthusiasm and misguided optimism, they sing all the songs and play all the parts in this crass historical epic, hoping one of the producers in attendance will give them a shot at Broadway stardom.

This madcap musical comedy by Anthony King and Scott Brown ran Off-Broadway at the Actor’s Playhouse in January 2007; it was nominated for the 2007 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical and the 2007 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical.
