“A deliciously horrifying concoction of ego and earnestness – with plenty of campy awfulness to let us laugh at the naïveté of this misguided creative team.” –

Starring Chris Adams and Erik Gow, this whirlwind  physical comedy presents 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 (Adams) and Doug (Gow) sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass not-so-historically-accurate epic musical, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will take them to Broadway – fulfilling their ill-advised dreams.

Directed by Chris McGregor, Gutenberg: The Musical! Plays at the Carousel Theater in Granville Island as part of the 2017 Vancouver Fringe Festival September 07 to 17.
