Drowsy Chaperone Tour to Kick Off at Toronto's Elgin Theatre
The show features a score by Tony Award winners Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison and a book by Tony Award winners Bob Martin and Don McKellar. As on Broadway, the touring production will be directed by Casey Nicholaw, and the creative team includes David Gallo (sets), Gregg Barnes (costumes), Ken Billington and Brian Monahan (lighting), Acme Sound Partners (sound), Larry Blank (orchestrations), and Phil Reno (musical direction).
The musical tells the story of a modern-day musical theater addict known simply as "Man in Chair." To chase his blues away, he drops the needle on his favorite LP: the 1928 musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone, which tells the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married.
