'A smashing success!' That's how The New York Times described Gutenberg! The Musical!, while the Associated Press hailed it as 'hysterically funny!' Writers Anthony King and Scott Brown produced an uproarious script - funnier than The Drowsy Chaperone. A two-man spoof of passionate musical theatre writers, Gutenberg! The Musical! stars Christopher Fitzgerald (Finian's Rainbow, Tony and Drama Desk nominee for Young Frankenstein) and Jeremy Shamos (Drama Desk nominee for Animals Out of Paper) as two desperate and bravely untalented songwriters performing a backers' audition for their new musical about the inventor of the printing press. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, the two authors sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic. Gutenberg! The Musical! opened 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, and its authors were nominated for the 2007 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical. Now, at long last, it's preserved by PS Classics in this Original Off-Broadway Cast Recording.
