THE DROWSY CHAPERONE to Play at Theatre Tallahassee Summer 2019

It's a Toldeo Surprise! Theatre Tallahassee will present The Drowsy Chaperone Aug. 15 through Sept. 1.
Winner of five Tony Awards (including Best Original Score) when it hit Broadway in 2006, The Drowsy Chaperone is for people who both love and hate the American musicals of the Jazz Age. The show’s narrator — a mousy, agoraphobic Broadway fanatic seeking a cure for the blues — listens to a recording of an obscure 1928 musical comedy: The Drowsy Chaperone. As he listens, he and the audience are transported into the musical. The characters appear in his dingy apartment, his cold-water flat is transformed into an impressive Broadway set, and both the narrator and the audience are taken on a 90-minute roller coaster ride of song, dance and laughter.
