The curtain rises on a simple apartment with a present day musical theater fanatic eager to tell you about his favorite Broadway musical – “The Drowsy Chaperone.” As he begins listening to the rare cast recording, the show magically blooms to life in his apartment, telling the hilarious tale of a pampered Broadway starlet and her debonair fiance, an overzealous producer, a dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a couple of bumbling gangsters. Ruses are played, hi-jinks occur, and the plot spins everyone into musical comedy euphoria. Nominated for 5 Tony awards and won for Best Book and Best Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is both a riotous parody of 1920’s screwball musical comedy and a heartfelt love letter to the musical genre as a whole, complete with unforgettable characters, mistaken identities, dream sequences, gangsters, and spit takes, all revolving around a wacky wedding. With an instantly hummable score, high-flying choreography, and a one-of-a-kind host, we invite you to immerse yourself in the grand, glittery, and glorious world of The Drowsy Chaperone at the Wilton Playshop.
