The Drowsy Chaperone
By Bob Martin & Don McKellar
Directed by John Peschl
The Drowsy Chaperone boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained. If you've ever sat in a dark theatre and thought, "Dear Lord in Heaven, please let it be good," this is the show for you!
It all begins with a die-hard musical theatre fan (The Man in the Chair) plays his favorite cast album--a fictional 1928 musical comedy "The Drowsy Chaperone"-- on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet (Janet Van de Graff) trying to find, and keep, her true love.
A musical that pays homage to the silly, predictable gems of the golden age of musical theatre.
