Typographical Theater

Dare I utter these words? There is a play running in San Francisco titled Gutenberg! The Musical! I didn't add those exclamation points, but I think they are deserved. The show is a two-man play about two writers trying to get funding for their for musical about Johann Gutenberg. I know the play within a play thing has been done before, but never about Johann Gutenberg. As expected there are references to letterpress and printing presses. There's even a beautiful girl names Helvetica (Now I have a name for my firstborn). For more information, visit the play's official site or read a review here.
