One of the best performances I've ever attended at the 24th St Theatre!
Steve Minnow as the 'Man In Chair' was hilarous! Went as a group and everyone had a great time!

Hilarious! I don't see how it could have been much better, unless they had a larger stage. Acting was wonderful. It was campy and smart, current and so well written. Everyone was having a good time. A great escape!!

Description

The show revolves around one musical theatre fan’s obsession with a fictional show from the 1920s — The Drowsy Chaperone. As he listens to the recording, the characters come to life in his apartment. This is the story of a Broadway actress, Janet Van De Graaf, who wants to marry the debonair Robert Martin and give up her stage career. Janet’s producer, Mr. Feldzie, must stop the wedding because if she quits show business, he’ll lose his job! Further, gangsters threaten Mr. Feldzie since if Janet quits, they lose their investment.
