Gutenberg! The Musical! Original Off-Broadway Cast Recording
A two-man spoof of passionate musical theatre writers, GUTENBERG! THE MUSICAL! stars Christopher Fitzgerald (Finianís Rainbow, Tony and Drama Desk nominee for Young Frankenstein) and Jeremy Shamos (Drama Desk nominee for Animals Out of Paper) as two desperate and bravely untalented songwriters performing a backers' audition for their new musical about the inventor of the printing press.
With an unending supply of enthusiasm, the two authors sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic. GUTENBERG! THE MUSICAL! opened at the Actorís Playhouse in January 2007; it was nominated for the 2007 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical and the 2007 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical, and its authors were nominated for the 2007 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical.
