The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical within a comedy that won five Tony awards after opening on Broadway in 2006, including Best Book and Best Original Score!
The Narrator, Man in Chair, presents us with his favorite musical “The Drowsy Chaperone” and as he plays the record the fictitious 1928 Broadway production of it comes to life around him.
In this fictional musical the bride to be, Janet Van De Graaff, has decided to give up the stage for love. The herring producer, Feltzing, must stop the wedding and get his star back or he will be shot by the gangsters who are posing as pastry chefs. All while being accompanied by a variety of wedding guests and of course Janet’s confidant The Chaperone. From the King of Romance to an Aviatrix this hilarious show features all kinds of fun characters and is sure to give you the same giddy feeling any golden age musical does!
