A musical exploration about one-man’s struggle to get to the top of his game, and then the struggle to find his place when the game has ended.

At the peak of his career playing several roles in the Tony and Grammy award winning smash hit Jersey Boys on Broadway, Eric made the decision to return to his hometown of Detroit so that he could raise his two young daughters closer to his family.  


Weaving together beloved songs from musical theatre and popular music, dead-on celebrity impressions, and sneak peeks at what goes on backstage at one of the biggest hits in Broadway history, Gutman, who made the transition from Broadway star to suburban Michigan Dad, will share his extraordinary gifts with audiences in this thrilling concert experience. 

From Broadway to Obscurity will be performing September 2022 at this year's Rochester Fringe Festival.
