‘Gutenberg! the Musical!’ returns for the Subiaco Theatre Festival

After an acclaimed season in 2016, Gutenberg! The Musical is bringing back the laughs, this time to the Subiaco Arts Centre in June.

The funny, musical-spoof about two ambitious writers, Bud and Doug, and their first (cross your fingers) Broadway smash, is showing as part of the Subiaco Theatre Festival from the 27th of June.

Taking the form of a ‘backers’ audition’, Bud and Doug introduce 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 their historical epic, hoping one of the producers in attendance will give them a shot at Broadway stardom.

Featuring Andrew Baker and Fringe World favourite Tyler Jacob Jones, the show had audiences and critics raving and gasping for breath in its original season.

“Gutenberg is really like nothing you’ve ever seen before – but you’ll want to see it again,” Baker said of the show. “We’ve already had people buy tickets who saw it last time”.

The madcap musical comedy written by New Yorkers Anthony King and Scott Brown, ran Off-Broadway and has been seen by audiences around the world. Its appeal reaches to lovers of musicals and comedy fans.

The Subiaco Theatre Festival runs through June at the Subiaco Arts Centre. Gutenberg! The Musical! is on from 27 – 30 June. Booking information: available at Perth Theatre Trust
