How To Procure Your Drowsy Chaperone Tickets
Homage to American musicals of the 1920s, The Drowsy Chaperone is the second successful musical from Canada on Broadway – after Baker Street, and the first in 25 years. There have been three other musicals from Canada on the stages of Broadway - Rockabye Hamlet, Billy Bishop Goes to War, Anne of Green Gables – but none made past a two-week run, and so are not considered Broadway productions. Created as a skit for a stag party, it metamorphosed into a great musical on its way to Broadway, via Toronto and Los Angeles. It is one of those musicals, not based on a book, play or movie, which became great.
The Drowsy Chaperone previewed on April 3, 2006 at the Marquis Theater, and after 32 previews, opened on May 1, 2006. By November 19, 2006, it has had 232 well-acclaimed performances. This Casey Nicholaw directed and choreographed musical was nominated for 13 Tony awards, and won five, for: Book of a Musical, Score (Music and/or Lyrics), Actress (Featured Role - Musical), Scenic Design (Musical), and Costume Design (Musical). In addition, it is the winner of seven 2006 Drama Desk Awards, and four Outer Circle Critics Awards 2006.
Dubbed as ‘a musical within a comedy,’ The Drowsy Chaperone has, as a host and a guide, a character that goes by the name Man in Chair. It is a story of a Broadway starlet – played by Sutton Foster, who wants to give it all up for marriage, and her producer (played by Lenny Wolpe) who goes about trying to sabotage the marriage. Then, there is the chaperone, a martini-swigging vamp played by Beth Leavel.
With the debonair groom, the ditzy chorine, the Latin lover and a couple of gangsters in the mix, The Drowsy Chaperone gives the audiences pure pleasure. This well written musical, with wonderful songs and music, had many raving about it by the time they left the theater. Many have claimed The Drowsy Chaperone to be the ‘best’ they have experienced on Broadway, in a long time. What has got the audiences going is the narration, the music, the lyrics, the dancing, and the jokes. The sets and costumes are outstanding.
