A rare combination of unprecedented originality and blinding talent, The Drowsy Chaperone boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained.
With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and he puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins, as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not so bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you've got a show soup dense with delicious delight!
The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterfully meta musical. Sending up all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre, this is a show that will leave you and your family rolling in laughter!
