Winner of 5 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 the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and the show 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 have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
THE DROWSY CHAPERONE is a masterful meta-musical with a show-within-a-show plot that pokes fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.
