I wore flats. There's always so much walking to the Music Center venues from just parking structure alone. I highly recommend wearing either flats or kitty heels..

An absolutely delightful comedy/musical. The actors were excellent, the singing was excellent, the staging was excellent, the overall production was excellent. Did I mention that Drowsy Chaperone was excellent?

Fabulous costumes and sets, very clever writing, mostly good performances...all in all, a light, very enjoyable evening. There's no particularly memorable music and a few of the vaudeville scenes could have been cut, but there was delightful wit...

Welcome to The Drowsy Chaperone, the musical comedy with tons of laughs and the most 2006 Tony Awards of any musical on Broadway. It all begins when a die-hard musical fan plays his favorite cast album, a 1928 smash hit called The Drowsy Chaperone, and the show magically bursts to life. The audience is instantly immersed in the glamorous, hilarious tale of a celebrity bride and her uproarious wedding day.
