Gutenberg! The Musical! at Greenbelt Arts Center, Dec 11-20, Online

GUTENBERG! THE MUSICAL!
by Anthony King and Scott Brown
Directed by Zack Walsh
Music Director Lucia LaNave
Choreographer Stefan Sittig
Produced by Pamela Northrup

Online two weekends: December 11, 12, 18 and 19.

By Greenbelt Arts Center, Online.

Gutenberg! The Musical is a play within a play, like Hamlet but even funnier! Wannabe Broadway writers Bud and Deb are just so darn excited to share their new musical with an audience, and what better way to share it than through a Zoom call! What they may lack in talent they make up for in awkward energy! Although their show – a biography of Johannes Gutenberg, inventor of the Printing Press – features an extensive cast, Bud and Deb have decided that for tonight’s performance they’ll read all the parts themselves! Starring Capital Fringe Festival favorites David Koenigberg and Aria Velz, Gutenberg! The Musical! is the perfect show for the COVID age- with no sets and costumes it relies only on your off-kilter imagination!

Notice: this play contains adult themes and language.

By purchasing a ticket you will receive the link to watch the show. Tickets: $15.

Preheat to the year 1835. Mix the Baker and the Nobleman together until romance blossoms. For a little confusion, gently add the Sweet Young Lady into the mix. Sprinkle in a pinch of frustrated love, and then add a dash of Hero rushing in to save the day. Bake at 350 degrees for the length of one duel, or until ready to admit the truth. Serves them all right. Quadrille is delicious tale featuring romance, secret plots, good food, more secret plots, bad food, heroic duels, and plenty of perfectly prepared corn muffins. Bon appetit!
