Your independent guide to the best shows in New York

1535 Broadway, New York, NY 10036


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.

Closed 30 Dec 2007

Modern day musical theatre addict known simply as 'Man in Chair' drops the needle on his favorite LP: the 1928 musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. 

From the crackle of his hi-fi, the musical comes to life on stage, telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs.
