Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical comedy gem offering a tribute to the Jazz Age musicals. As the musical opens, the audience is introduced to a theatre fan playing his favorite cast album, the fictitious 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone, on his turntable. As he listens to the record, the characters come to life in his apartment and mayhem ensues. Hailed by New York Magazine as "the perfect Broadway musical," The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.
The running time for The Drowsy Chaperone is approximately 90 minutes. There is no intermission.
