In this hilarious valentine to show tunes and show people, a forgotten Jazz Age musical comes to life in the living room of a die-hard theatre fan. As he eagerly spins his favorite cast album, a bubbly vintage show appears, exploding with song, dance, and merriment. Our quirky narrator fills the plot holes, with laugh-out-loud results. Winner of five Tony Awards, The Drowsy Chaperone is packed with show-stopping numbers and larger-than-life characters, adding up to one zany musical comedy!
