The Drowsy Chaperone
A musical with book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison
Directed by Andrea Robertson • June 20-30, 2013
The Man in Chair, a mousy, agoraphobic Broadway fanatic, seeking to cure his "non-specific sadness", listens to a recording of the (fictional) 1928 musical comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone. As he listens to this rare recording, the characters appear in his dingy apartment, and it is transformed into an impressive Broadway set with seashell footlights, sparkling furniture, painted backdrops, and glitzy costumes. Man in Chair provides a running commentary throughout the show.
