The Drowsy Chaperone is both a riotous parody of 1920’s screwball musical comedy and a heartfelt\ love letter to the musical genre as a whole. With book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, this 5-­time Tony Award winning musical introduces us to the incomparable “Man In Chair”, a mousy, agoraphobic, musical theatre fanatic who takes us through the famed (and fictional) musical classic, The Drowsy Chaperone, complete with mistaken identities, dream sequences, gangsters, follies, and spit takes. With an instantly hummable score, high-flying choreography, and a one-­of-­a-­kind host, we invite you to immerse yourself in the grand, glittery, and glorious world of The Drowsy Chaperone.
