Based on Homer's The Odyssey, a young refugee called Anon journeys through the United States, encountering a wide variety of people - some kind, some dangerous and cruel - as he searches for his family.

When a theatre fan introduces his favorite piece, the fictitious 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone, the characters come to life in this hilarious musical farce. Hailed by New York Magazine as "the perfect Broadway musical," the Tony Award-winner is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.
