A little bit of miscellany to round out the day for this writer. By way of bblinks, we learned about Gutenberg! the Musical, now appearing at the Actor’s Playhouse in NY. We’re not entirely sure what it’s about, but we see that it involves hats, and on one of those hats (see picture), it says Helvetica. So we’re thinking that, at some point, for however long, the thing has to do with type. And thus, it has found its way here. A synopsis from their site:
In 1450, Johann Gutenberg invented the printing press. In Nutley, NJ, Bud and Doug wrote a musical about him. They don’t have a cast, an orchestra, or a clue, but they have a lot of hats. Tonight they’re pitching this hilarious epic to the producers who might take their dream to Broadway.
If you happen to see it, drop us a line and let us know what you thought. Sounds interesting.
