The Drowsy Chaperone is a parody of American musical comedy of the 1920s. The story concerns a middle-aged, asocial musical theater fan. As he plays the record of his favorite musical, the (fictional) 1928 hit “The Drowsy Chaperone,” the show comes to life in his apartment as he hilariously comments on the show. The plot incorporates mistaken identities, dream sequences, spit takes, an unflappable English butler, an absent-minded dowager, a Broadway impresario and his Follies production, comic gangsters, a ditzy chorine, a harried best man, and the Drowsy(“tipsy”) Chaperone, played in the show-within-a-show by a blowzy Grande Dame of the stage, not above upstaging her costars! The Drowsy Chaperone opened on Broadway in 2006, winning five Tony Awards.
