Original Broadway production of The Drowsy Chaperone produced by Kevin McCollum, Roy Miller, Bob Boyett, Stephanie McClelland, Barbara Freitag and Jill Furman.

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 Off Broadway Theatre is proud to present The Drowsy Chaperone, a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another that the entire family can enjoy! Due to some content, we don't recommend this show for children under 13. Parents and guardians should see the show prior to bringing children. The show is more PG-13 and not OBT's typical parodies.
