The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical comedy for people who just love musicals. It is a madcap romp from the moment a lonely New Yorker puts the record player needle down to play the audience his favorite record. We join him and the entire cast as he recreates in his imagination a 1928 “classic” featuring glamorous stars in love, a frazzled Broadway producer and his dim-witted girlfriend, some faintly threatening gangsters, an aging Latin lover, and the title character, a tipsy and drowsy chaperone. All have convened for a wedding at a gorgeous mansion owned by a ditzy matron, but run by a perfect butler. Light, frothy, silly, charming, The Drowsy Chaperone is more PG-13 than some frequently performed musicals as this Prohibition-era story flaunts champagne and suggests some hanky-panky, but it is all in done in the tasteful style of an Astaire/Rogers movie. Please, come join the fun!
