A delightful evening of fun. Well directed and creatively presented. A surprise every minute. The reviewers were caught up comparing one cast with a version they saw last year and totally miss the fact that this encarnation is just as entertaining and delightful as it could possibly be. See it.

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...

“You’re unlikely to have as funny an evening of theater this season as you will at this hilarious, side-splitting show.” —WNBC-TV
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.
Music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison
Book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar
Directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw
