Hailed as “The Perfect Broadway Musical,” this five-time Tony® Award winner is a masterful love letter to musical comedy that will leave you singing, dancing and laughing your way out of the theatre.

Alone in his modest apartment, a Broadway fan puts on his favourite cast recording – a 1928 romp called The Drowsy Chaperone. As the record spins, the colourful characters spring to life, immersing him in the hilarious tale of a glamourous celebrity bride and her impending nuptials … complete with a tap dancing groom, bumbling best man, wise-cracking butler, desperate producer, ambitious chorus girl, misguided Don Juan, two goofy gangsters posing as pastry chefs, and a tipsy chaperone!

Don’t miss the clever musical parody that will sweep you away on a Jazz Age journey of love, laughter, and libation with its show-stopping song and dance numbers.
