To commemorate its acclaimed and beloved Broadway run, The Drowsy Chaperone hosted a VIP private closing night party at Havana Central (151 West 46th Street) on December 30.  The entire current Broadway cast and creative team, plus former cast members and friends celebrated the musical and toasted to its success.

The five-time Tony Award winning hit musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone played its final performance on Broadway at The Marquis Theatre (1535 Broadway) on Sunday evening, December 30, 2007 at 7PM following 674 performances and 32 previews.

The sleeper hit became the most celebrated musical of the 2006 season and garnered thirteen major awards, thirteen Tony Award nominations and the most Tonys of any musical - five in total, including Best Book and Best Score. The Drowsy Chaperone was also honored with seven Drama Desk Awards, including Best Musical; four Outer Critic's Circle Awards, including Outstanding Score; and the Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Musical.

The Drowsy Chaperone recouped its initial investment on Broadway in only thirty weeks and in less than seven months, paying back its $8 million capitalization during the week ending November 26, 2006.
