The Drowsy Chaperone
Chicago, welcomes the National Tour of The Drowsy Chaperone. Written by the same team that gave us Slings and Arrows, this is a musical within a play about a lonely man. One night, in his apartment, he takes us (the audience) through the original cast recording of his favorite music.
Much like Slings and Arrows is a loving embrace of all things theatre and Shakespeare, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving embrace of the Musical Theatre genre. Able to get away with things through parody, this show illuminates all that is good (and bad) about Musical Comedy in a manner that will tickle and delight you.
I saw this show on Thursday. On a personal note, I had the pleasure to watch a friend whom I had attended arts camp and university with in one of the leading roles. It's fun to be able to see someone you know having made it.
Highly recommended and a must see.
