What's the Word?

"As Goodrich and Bliss perform their addle-brained but exuberant Bad Idea musical, you’ll find yourself enjoying its high camp and adherence to classical form.

-Time Out Chicago

"On Wednesday night's opening, Bliss and Goodrich struck me as overly nervous at first. But they got more comfortable and credible later in the evening and thus the show got belatedly funnier. To a point. This is a bare-bones production of a bare-bones production. It still needs stripping down to get to the comedic truth."

What's Our Word?

Alex Timbers took his direction midwest for this production of Gutenberg! so the differences between this and the New York production were slight. As our introduction to regional theater however, this show will always hold a very special place in our hearts. Major points for Breon Bliss’ impressive George W. Bush interpretation of Monk and the massive amounts of merchandise sold in the lobby. We would be nothing without our Gutenberg! T-shirts!
