Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, this show is a lovingly comedic parody of the frivolously inconsequential stage musicals of the Jazz Age. A fan known only as Man in Chair invites you on his nostalgic journey back to his all-time favourite show The Drowsy Chaperone. 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 characterise the musical theatre genre, providing something for all audiences (especially those who claim not to be musical theatre fans…).
If you’ve ever sat for two hours in a theatre willing for something entertaining, The Drowsy Chaperone’s intoxicating charm will surpass those expectations!
