When a once-great but now-broke Broadway producer and his accountant hatch a scheme to deliberately mount a sure-fire flop so they can abscond with the unspent production money, what could possibly go wrong? It turns out the only thing worse than getting caught is having a surprise hit on their hands. Based on the 1968 film starring Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel, and featuring the hilarious show within a show called Springtime for Hitler, The Producers skewers the absurdities of musical theater even as it delivers one of the best (and most over-the-top) Broadway shows in recent years. With a book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Mel Brooks, the Broadway production nabbed 12 Tony Awards. Learn More

People who love musicals, and even those who hate them, will enjoy this clever and funny play! I loved it, and could see why it won 5 Tony Awards on Broadway.
My seat turned out to be even a few rows closer than the designated range, maybe because of my Red Carpet membership :-)
I know this musical was written without an intermission (you'll find out why when you watch it), but after an hour and a half I had to answer the call of nature. When I returned I sat on a side, which was less obstructed and offered more elbow room. The play should have a brief intermission.
Very nice nostalgic old theater, with a lot of legroom. The stage doesn't seem to be very high, so even shorter people in front of you are a little bit of a hindrance, but I'd heartily recommend this play, and 3D Theatrical Productions in general, as you get to experience a high quality production, with live orchestra, at a great Goldstar value!
Quotes & Highlights
- Featuring Sally Struthers as Mrs. Tottendale
- The Drowsy Chaperone won the 2006 Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.
A rare combination of unprecedented originality and blinding talent, The Drowsy Chaperone boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained. If you've ever sat in a dark theatre and thought, "Dear Lord in heaven, please let it be good," this is the show for you!
It all begins when a die-hard musical-theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love.
