The Drowsy Chaperone


The Drowsy Chaperone begins with the audience being greeted by the narrator, Man in the Chair, sitting on a darkened stage. He is a fan of vintage musicals who seems to be suffering from the blues, and he quickly decides to cheer things up by playing a record of the original cast recording of a (fictional) Broadway musical entitled “The Drowsy Chaperone”. No sooner has the needle touched the record than we, together with the narrator, are transported to a 1928 Broadway theater and into a play-within-a‐play crammed full of every cliché, gag and gimmick from the golden age of musicals.
