Witty, funny, EXCELLENT performances -- great fun. Best play I have seen at this Playhouse. In case you have not been to this venue: Intimate seating at individual tables -- no bad seats.

This is an absolutely delightful play. It's a narrated musical and the narrator is clever, humble and downright funny. This is a very comfortable playhouse. I highly recommend you attend this play. You'll walk out smiling.

A delightful play, good actors - particularly the Drowsy Chaperone and the supporting cast. However, the leads sang off key, couldn't reach higher notes, and generally, were weak in this very important area. There are plenty of actors in San...continued

The playhouse held 27 tables. Every seat offer a good view. The sound system can be improved. The comedy is light hearted, the man in chair was funny without overboard. The lady played as Chaperone has a wide range of voice. i was not impressed...continued

I really enjoyed the "narrator's" acting; his movements and timing and tone worked very well in the role. Overall, though, I wasn't as enamored with this musical when compared to others I've seen this year.

The players were very talented and enthusiastic. The show itself was kinda lame. Broad slapstick which is not my style, but the crowd loved it.

This was an enjoyable evening. Surely not a Broadway production of the play, but certainly entertaining.

This a charming cast and they do a very good job. Io really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the space and the table seating. There were some minor sound issues the night I saw it, but nothing distrating.

An enjoyable musical with the unusual conceit of having the narrator play an old record of a bygone musical. When he stops the record to add a comment, the actors stop in mid-song. The leads had good singing voices and great comedic timing - a...continued

I enjoyed the venue and the play. The "man in the chair" narrator was interesting and my favorite part of the play.
