It all starts with a man in a chair, who is feeling a little bit blue. To cure his sadness, he throws on one of his old favorite records: the original cast recording of the fictitious 1928 musical The Drowsy Chaperone. He paints us the picture of a hilarious wedding between famous actress Janet Van De Graaf and oil tycoon Robert Martin. The wedding is expected to run smoothly, but toss in an aspiring starlet, a desperate Broadway producer, a couple of suspicious pastry chefs, an erroneous womanizer, and a rather tipsy chaperone and well...things get a little complicated. Sit back and cure any of your “non-specified sadness,” with this wildly humorous, Tony Award–winning musical.

“It is a valentine to the extravagant musicals of the 1920's.  A fond reminiscence of a long lost era when prohibition reigned, liquor flowed like water, showgirls were the Madonna's of their time, and gangsters were a dime a dozen.” -Splash Magazine
