When a die-hard musical fan plays his favorite cast album, an obscure show called "The Drowsy Chaperone," the show magically spins to life right in the middle of his small apartment. We are instantly transported to the 1920's, and immersed in the glamorous, hilarious tale of a celebrity bride and her uproarious wedding day - complete with an absent-minded hostess, a harried producer, a dizzy chorine, a pair of gangsters, a Latin lothario, an aviatrix and the gin-soaked chaperone herself. Oh...and monkeys.
This sparkling musical was honored with 5 Tony Awards, including best story and best music!
