We are overjoyed to announce our upcoming production, The Drowsy Chaperone, a hilarious “musical inside a comedy.” This delightful send-up of a typical 1920s musical revels alongside a celebrity bride and her zany cohorts who dance, drink, sing, seduce, snooze and roller-skate their way through her uproarious wedding day.
With the houselights down, the narrator puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a
fictitious 1928 musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. As the record starts, the musical comes to life in his apartment allowing him to poke fun at all the tropes that characterize genre in this witty play-within-a-play.
The Drowsy Chaperone is the winner of five 2006 Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards. The musical was nominated for 13 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. It won five Tonys including Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical.
Hailed by New York Magazine as "The perfect Broadway musical," The Drowsy Chaperone has everything one needs for an evening of madcap delight.
The Drowsy Chaperone is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI, www.mtishows.com
