The Drowsy Chaperone
With Music and Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison. Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar
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 number after another. A musical comedy fan known only as "Man in Chair" puts on his favorite record, the original cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical called The Drowsy Chaperone, and in an instant the record comes magically to life. His apartment is filled up and swept away by a jazz-age evening of madcap delight. Out of the woodwork come two Broadway stars on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theater producer and his moll, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters (--or are they pastry chefs?), an aviatrix, a misguided Don Juan and a very heavily intoxicated chaperone.
