Playhouse on the Square Presents THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, 8/13-9/5

It all begins when a die-hard musical fan plays his favorite cast album, a 1928 smash hit called "The Drowsy Chaperone," and the show magically bursts to life. We are instantly immersed in the glamorous, hilarious tale of a celebrity bride and her uproarious wedding day, complete with thrills and surprises that take both the cast and the audience soaring to the rafters. "You're unlikely to have as funny an evening of theater this season as you will at this hilarious, side-splitting show." -WNBC-TV
