A run of the mill, endearingly neurotic recluse invites the audience into his dingy New York City apartment to revel in the former glory of a beloved obsession, his one true love: the record of the 1920’s Broadway musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. As the record starts playing, the prohibition era bursts from the moldy apartment walls, and we see the musical come to life through the man’s eyes. Enter a myriad of kooky characters, from stylized gangsters to a Latin lovers, who have gathered to celebrate the wedding of a Follies star and her Gene Kelly-like fiancé. The Follies producer plots to stop the wedding in the hopes of regaining his starlet, and lighthearted mix-ups and mayhem ensue, all the while cynically but lovingly commented on by the man. This play within a play truly brings out the best in what theater, and people, have to offer; fairy tale and reality blur, creating a wonderfully balanced dichotomy of what it means to face the truth about the life you have built for yourself, how imagination can be a savior, and how to let go.
