Then, history gets a zany and hilarious shake-up in GUTENBERG! THE MUSICAL with book, music and lyrics by Scott Brown and Anthony King, directed by Co-Artistic Director John D. Glover and music direction by Resident Music Director Kory Danielson. The 2016 season will also include two yet-to-be announced new works, presented as part of Kokandy’s New Staged Musical Reading Series, dedicated to developing new works for the musical theatre canon.
