The Drowsy Chaperone: A Musical Within a Comedy
Music and Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison
Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar

Directed by David Allen George
Musical direction by Joseph Stroup
Choreography by Meghan McLyman

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.

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix 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 and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have 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.

Join us as we raise the curtain for the first time in the Sophia Gordon Center for Creative and Performing Arts!
