Quotes & Highlights

“Outrageous humor! An openly affectionate and uproariously funny tribute to a bygone era.” —Variety
The recent Toronto production of The Drowsy Chaperone was lauded as " the best thing to happen to musical theatre in recent memory."

Description

Music and Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison

Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar

Directed by Casey Nicholaw

This pre-Broadway musical is a deliciously silly and affectionate love letter to the great musicals of the gay 1920’s —a time when the champagne flowed, the caviar chilled and all the world was a guilty pleasure.

This fabled 1928 Gable & Stein musical classic tells the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to marry. Her producer sets out to sabotage the nuptials or it’s curtains for him. Enter the chaperone, the debonair groom, a dizzy chorine, the Latin lover, and a couple of gangsters. Ruses are played. Hi-jinks occur. And the plot spins completely out of control!
