The Drowsy Chaperone

Director's Notes:
I love a good comedy with a heavy-hitting ending. The Drowsy Chaperone fits this category so nicely. The approach we took with this one was to celebrate historical musical theatre. The Drowsy Chaperone parodies several Golden Age musicals and does it well. It is at times uproariously funny, but then Bob Martin reigns it all in when the power goes out right before the final note of the musical and the journey that our narrator, Man in Chair, began with us has effectively been ruined. One of my great strengths as a director is in casting and this show was probably the most well-casted play I have ever done. I am very pleased with how this production turned out.
