Show-within-a-show Gutenberg! The Musical will get another run in the Capital City this weekend.

The two-man musical had it’s first chance in July 2015 with a debut at the Community Players of Concord studio.

Last winter, a sellout crowd at the Capitol Center for the Arts saw the show, too.

If you missed it then, or just want to see it again, you’ll have two more chances Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Hatbox Theater at the Steeplegate Mall.

The show is the story of two guys working on a musical about Johann Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press.

Don’t worry, it’s not a boring history lesson, but an experience with boundless comedy.

It’s got a small cast: buddies David Peck and Doug Schwarz (literally wearing many hats), accompanied by Brandon Buteau on piano.

Tickets are $16.50 or $13.50 for members, seniors and students. For more information or purchase, visit hatboxnh.com. More than half the proceeds will benefit the Community Players.
