Janet Morris, Director
The play’s narrator is a fan of vintage musicals who seems to be suffering from depression. He quickly decides to cheer things up by playing a record of the original recording of (fictional) Broadway musical entitled “The Drowsy Chaperone”. As soon as the record begins, the audience and the narrator are transported to a 1928 Broadway theatre and into “The Drowsy Chaperone”, a play-within-a-play crammed fill of every cliché, gag and gimmick from the golden age of musicals.
