Photo Coverage: The Drowsy Chaperone Anniversary

The Drowsy Chaperone, which opened at the Marquis Theatre on May 1st, recently celebrated its one year anniversary on Broadway.

The show is directed and choreographed by Tony Award-nominee Casey Nicholaw (Spamalot) with music and lyrics by Tony Award-winners Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison and a book by Tony Award-winners Bob Martin and Don McKellar. The recipient of thirteen major awards, The Drowsy Chaperone "tells the story of a modern day musical theater addict known simply as 'Man in Chair.'  To chase his blues away he drops the needle on his favorite LP – the 1928 musical comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone.  From the crackle of his hi-fi, the musical magically bursts to life on-stage telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs.  Man in Chair's love of The Drowsy Chaperone speaks to anyone who has ever been transported by the theater," state press materials.

The show stars John Glover, Janine LaManna, Danny Burstein and Tony-winner Beth Leavel, among others.  A national tour is in the works.
