Gutenberg! The Musical extends to 3 Jun 2007

Gutenberg! The Musical, a musical comedy by Scott Brown & Anthony King, extends its run by 10 Weeks, and will now play through to 3 Jun 2007.

Gutenberg! The Musical opened at the Actors Playhouse on 16 Jan 2007 and was originaly schedule to close on 25 Mar 2007.

Gutenberg! The Musical is a two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights, Bud Davenport and Doug Simon, perform a backers� audition for their new project - a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg.

With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract - fulfilling their ill-advised dreams.

Directed by Alex Timbers, Gutenberg! The Musical features David Turner (Bud Davenport), Jeremy Shamos (Doug Simon) and Ryan Karels Costumes by Emily Rebholz and lighting by Tyler Micoleau.

Gutenberg! The Musical marks the first Off-Broadway transfer for the acclaimed Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, where it was originally developed in 2003. UCBT showcased an excerpt of the musical at the 2005 New York Musical Theatre Festival as part of the NYMF Comedy Series.

The Musical had its world premiere in a critically acclaimed production at The Jermyn Street Theatre in London in January 2006. All of these presentations and productions were devised and performed by the authors, Scott Brown and Anthony King.
