With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears and decides to share his favorite cast album with the audience: a fictitious 1928 musical entitled, The Drowsy Chaperone. As the man looks on, the musical comes to life within his apartment. The 1928 storyline mixes 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 a female aviatrix….and oh, yes – a drowsy chaperone: the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight. Hailed by New York Magazine as “The Perfect Broadway Musical,” The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.
