THE DROWSY CHAPERONE

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. 

A veritable who’s who of Morgan-Wixson Theatre regulars, a director on a roll, and a crackerjack team of production designers join forces to make Broadway’s The Drowsy Chaperone the all-around best Morgan-Wixson musical I’ve reviewed since first raving about their Thoroughly Modern Millie back in 2009.

Very entertaining production!

The excellent cast is picture-perfect, and the entire production team does a bang-up job of bringing a delightfully spoof-full musical comedy back to energetic, vigorous, and spectacular life.
