A musical poking fun at musicals? Yes, please!!

Posted

Winner of five Tony Awards, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.

To chase his blues away, a modern-day musical theater addict drops the needle on his favorite record – the 1928 musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone.

From the crackle of his hi-fi, the musical magically bursts to life on stage, telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorus girl, the Casanova, and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs.

Hijinks ensue… There might even be a plane that flies in.  Don’t miss it.
