THE DROWSY CHAPERONE Comes to the Historic El Portal Theatre 9/15

Producers Douglas Holiday and Arthur Aaronson proudly present THE DROWSY CHAPERONE on the Debbie Reynold's Mainstage at the historic El Portal Theatre in the NOHO Arts District, North Hollywood, CA. September 15 - 24, 217. Eight performances only!

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 theatre 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 by New York Magazine as "The Perfect Broadway Musical," The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.

The NY Times says: "Surely few productions have ever pulled an audience so immediately and unconditionally on their sides. The first few minutes of "The Drowsy Chaperone , take place in complete darkness, while an anxious but companionable voice drifts from the stage like a life line."

This production of the award winning musical is Produced by Arthur Aaronson and Douglas Holiday and directed by Donna M. Manfredi.
