This charming and bombastic new musical, the winner of several Tony Awards, is a clever show within a show. The curtain rises on an asocial theatre fan listening to a rare recording of his favorite show in the comfort of his apartment. As he listens, The Drowsy Chaperone comes to life around him. The musical within the comedy begins on the day of the wedding of oil tycoon Robert Martin and Broadway star Janet Van De Graff. A host of outlandish guests complicate matters for the bride and groom. Featuring songs like "As We Stumble Along" and "Love Is Always Lovely In The End," The Drowsy Chaperoneincludes mistaken identities, dream sequences, and even a deus ex machina. This parody of the musical comedies of the 1920s is sure to delight musical fans from every generation.
