They changed Patina Restaurant in the courtyard. They made it smaller and changed to a price fixed menu. We arrived 1 1/2 hrs. early and couldn't get in. The taco bar was closed. We couldn't get into another restaurant and ended up getting a sandwich from the fast food kiosk.

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...continued

Smart & funny. I've seen it 5 times. And every time I've taken someone new, they've fallen in love with it.

Description

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
