Description

from Gutenberg! The Musical!
Josh Gad and Andrew Rannells star in Gutenberg! The Musical, a hilarious new musical about an unintentionally hilarious new musical.

In this two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights 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.

The original stars of The Book of Mormon are together again!

Need we say more? Okay, we will! Josh Gad and Andrew Rannells – who became pretty famous on Broadway and then extremely super famous out in Hollywood, are coming back to their musical theater roots and putting on a show together because they just love each other so damn much. And what did they pick? A hilarious new musical from the guys who wrote Beetlejuice and the guy who directed Beetlejuice and Moulin Rouge.

It’s the story of two best pals named Bud and Doug who put on a show together because they just love each other so damn much. It’s art imitating life, imitating art! And it’s the funniest thing to come to Broadway since 1448! (Which is the year the printing press was invented by Johannes Gutenberg, who is the subject of the musical that Bud and Doug write, but that’s not important right now.)
