Gutenberg the Musical," presented by Sea Tea Improv in Hartford
“With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud (Dan Russell) and Doug (Greg Ludovici) sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract - fulfilling their ill-advised dreams.”
Performances are: Nov. 14 at 8p.m.; Nov. 15 at 8p.m. and Nov. 16 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $15.
Parking will be available at the Mark Twain House and Museum lot, a very short walk from the theater.
