Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song-and-dance number after another. With a book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, the show’s curtain rises on a musical theatre fanatic, Man in Chair, who is eager to tell the audience about his favorite Broadway musical, “The Drowsy Chaperone.” He’s the ultimate fan, and “Drowsy” is his guilty pleasure.
As he begins listening to the rare cast recording, the show within a show cleverly and magically blooms to life, telling the hilarious tale of a pampered Broadway starlet and her debonair fiancé, an overzealous producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone. A true love letter to musical theatre, The Drowsy Chaperone has all the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
