D.C. Area Premiere of the 2006 Five-Time Tony Award Winning Show
The Drowsy Chaperone
, a "Musical within a Comedy," celebrates American musicals of the Jazz Age. It all begins when a die-hard musical fan plays his favorite cast album; a 1928 smash hit "The Drowsy Chaperone." As he listens, the musical magically comes to life in his apartment. And, with him, the audience is immersed into a delightful, uproarious tale with glamorous brides, tap-dancing groomsmen and a madcap group of fellow characters. With book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, the production opened on Broadway in 2006, featured Sutton Foster and won Five Tony awards that year including Best Book and Best Score.
