After the 60th Annual Tony Awards on June 11th, broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall, the cast, creative team and friends of The Drowsy Chaperone headed to a party at Providence on 57th Street to celebrate the musical's numerous Tony Awards.

The Drowsy Chaperone won five Tonys for Best Book of a Musical (Bob Martin and Don McKellar), Best Original Score (Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison), Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical (Beth Leavel), Best Scenic Design of a Musical (David Gallo), and Best Costume Design of a Musical (Gregg Barnes).

The Drowsy Chaperone opened May 1, 2006 at the Marquis Theatre (1535 Broadway). "To chase his blues away, a modern day musical theatre addict known simply as "Man in Chair" drops the needle on his favorite LP the 1928 musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. From the crackle of his hi-fi, the uproariously funny musical magically bursts to life on stage," state press notes. In addition to Leavel, The Drowsy Chaperone stars Sutton Foster, Bob Martin, Danny Burstein (all of whom received Tony nominations for their performances), Georgia Engel, Troy Britton Johnson and more.
