  The Drowsy Chaperone at Morgan-Wixson Theatre

The Drowsy Chaperone

Morgan-Wixson Theatre
2627 Pico Blvd. Santa Monica

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight. 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.

Broadway World - Recommended

"...Vaudevillian couple Mrs. Tottendale (AnnaLisa Erickson) and the Underling (Daniel Koh) provide much comic relief throughout the show with charming dancing duets and many spit takes involving ice water and/or vodka. Even this couple proves that love is always lovely in the end, when the off-and-on again wedding of Janet and Robert takes place with many more couples tying the knot with them."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...A veritable who’s who of Morgan-Wixson Theatre regulars, a director on a roll, and a crackerjack team of production designers join forces to make Broadway’s The Drowsy Chaperone the all-around best Morgan-Wixson musical I’ve reviewed since first raving about their Thoroughly Modern Millie back in 2009."
