Broadway Monday

The Drowsy Chaperone

In 2006, one of the most creative shows to hit the Great White Way debuted much to the delight of theatre lovers smart enough to grab a seat!

"It all begins when a die-hard musical-theatre fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love."

We were fortunate enough to see this wonderfully hilarious and creative show last year during a matinee. Those 5th row tickets provided us not only with the pleasure of getting to see this show, but also a respite from the 90 degree heatwave that consumed the city that weekend! We walked away with great memories, catchy tunes, lots of laughs and the most expensive air conditioning ever purchased! Totally worth every penny!

Drowsy won 5 Tony Awards including Best Music, Best Book, and Best Featured Actress and the Drama Desk Award for Best Musical. The show closed on Broadway this year, but is currently touring the US. Raise your hand if you're going!
