Gutenberg! The Musical!
written by Scott Brown & Anthony King
directed by Tom Quinn
A co-production with Montgomery Theater
1st rehearsal: 8/21/12.
Runs at Montgomery Theatre 9/13-10/6/12. Runs at Act II Oct. 9 – Nov. 4, 2012
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 irreverent historical epic.
Doug Simon: is an innocent. He’s a naïve, utterly sincere and earnest man who never met a cause he wasn’t passionate about. He’s a jack-of-all-trades, master of none, who compensates with an infectious, matter-of-fact energy and focus that would probably sound condescending if he weren’t so likable. He’s incredibly proud of the show he wrote with Bud, and thinks Bud, whom he adores, is a genius. 37ish.
Bud Davenport: CAST. An innocent. He’s eager to please, and thrives on approval. When Bud sings one of his songs, he’s reveling in his own “brilliance.” But he’s too naïve to be a true egomaniac; if anything, he’s overly grateful for the mere opportunity to create and perform. Bud enjoys getting caught up in Doug’s passion and admires his friend’s Big Ideas. 32ish.
