Presented by Lakewood Cultural Center and Performance Now Theatre Company in Lakewood through April 5th (NOTE: the Opening has been postponed – check website for updates). When a die-hard theater fan plays his favorite cast album, the characters come to life in this hilarious musical farce. Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life, and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theater producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight. Hailed as “the perfect Broadway musical” by New York Magazine, The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theater genre.
