The Drowsy Chaperone is a parody of the American musical comedies of the 1920s. The story concerns a middle-aged, asocial musical theatre fan as he plays the record of his favorite musical, the fictional 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone. As he wryly comments on the music, story, and actors, the characters come to life onstage. These include 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, an intoxicated chaperone and other zany characters. Winner of five 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.

Tickets cost $15 and go on sale to the public on July 29th.
