BUFFALO, NY

 
January 20 - February 6, 2011
Alt Theatre
255 Great Arrow Ave
Buffalo, NY

Cast: Tim Newell as Bud
         David Butler as Doug

Directed by Loraine O’Donnell

What's the Word?
"Tim Newell asserts himself on the Alt stage as one of the best comic actors Buffalo has. His array of facial expressions and command of physical humor say a great deal more than his singing voice. His interplay with Butler (who holds his own next to Newell’s more honed comic chops), guided by Loraine O’Donnell’s smart direction, is schtick at its best."

Plan B Productions
Egyptian Theatre
328 Main Street
Salt Lake City, UT

Cast: Jay Perry as Bud
         Kirt Bateman as Doug

Directed by Jerry Rapier

What's the Word?
"Which is why I’ll understand if you don’t believe me when I say that “Gutenberg! The Musical,” currently playing at the Egyptian Theatre in Park City, made me laugh so hard I could barely breathe. The story of two idiots who are madly in love with what may be the worst musical of all time, “Gutenberg!” is so wrong – the opening scene feels like the greatest extended dead baby joke of all time – and yet so innocently enthusiastic that you can’t stop laughing. It’s like “South Park” through the eyes of the two  sweetest 12-year-olds you’ll ever meet..."

What's the Word?
There have been musicals about presidential assassins, Siamese twins, unrepentant murderesses, plucky orphans, spousal abuse, the Gold Rush and Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg. But just when you think there can’t be anything stranger, along comes “Gutenberg: The Musical.”
