The Drowsy Chaperone was called "the perfect musical" by New York magazine. It begins as a die hard theater fan puts the cast album of his favorite stage musical on this record player to chase his blues away. Suddenly, his dingy apartment's magically transformed into a 1928 Broadway set and he finds himself in the center of a "musical within a comedy", mixed up in mayhem with a starlet, her groom, a desperate producer, gangsters, a drunken chaperone and more. Featuring such songs as "Fancy Dress", "As We Stumble Along", and "Show Off", the original Broadway run of The Drowsy Chaperone won Tony Awards for Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score. You simply can't miss this crowd-pleasing musical treat!
