MARQUIS THEATER

1535 Broadway, New York, NY 10036

THE DROWSY CHAPERONE

Ended 30 Dec 2007 after 19 months

The musical comedy with tons of laughs and the most 2006 Tony Awards of any musical on Broadway! It all begins when a die-hard musical fan plays his favorite cast album, a 1928 smash hit called The Drowsy Chaperone, and the show magically bursts to life.

Surprising Fun,
May 30, 2006
reviewer: from Ohio
I had no idea what to expect when I stumbled into this show last weekend. From the first few words spoken in the darkness, I knew I was in for a treat! Although probably more enjoyable for the frequent musical go-er, everyone can appreciate the witty writing and wonderful timing of this quirky little show. It's a terrific look back at when theatre was fun, and proves as silly and over the top as musicals can be, audiences still love them. Who needs vampires and vines, when you can have good old fashioned slapstick and a few spit takes?

funny, charming, colorful, well sung, clever, witty, different and fresh. Original. I LOVED THE ENTRANCE APPLAUSE --- for a few leads --- you never hear that much anymore

PURE FUN,
Jun 25, 2006
reviewer: from CT
What a treat! The premise is appealing; the narration, clever. The music, lyrics, dancing, jokes, sight gages, sets, and costumes are outstanding. I'm surprised that it didn't win even more Tonys than it did. Don't hesitate. Treat yourself to some pure fun!

I Left the Theater Smiling!,
Jul 27, 2006
reviewer: from Connecticut, USA
I just saw "The Drowsy Chaperon" at yesterday's matinee. What a great show! Its very well written, with wonderful songs and music. The performers were all spectacular. It was fresh and original, and perhaps the best thing I've experienced in New York in years. The awards were well deserved, and I hope it has a long successful run. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
