A parody of American musical comedy of the 1920s. As the recording of the (fictional) 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone plays, the show comes to life onstage. It’s all there: Mistaken identities, dream sequences, an unflappable English butler, an absent-minded dowager, a Broadway impresario, comic gangsters, a ditzy chorine, a harried best man, and a “Drowsy” (i.e. “tipsy”) Chaperone, played in the show-within-a-show by a blowzy Grande Dame of the Stage. The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at the musical theatre genre.
