"What more do you need for an evening's entertainment?"

Running on the Globe Theatre Main Stage this spring, The Drowsy Chaperone is an irreverent, made-in-Canada musical that manages to be both an affectionate tribute and a merciless send-up of the rip-roaring Jazz Age.

The Drowsy Caperone is a musical comedy that will transport you into the colourful world of the roaring twenties complete with goofy gangsters, slow-witted starlets, aviators, Latino heartthrobs and flappers. This Tony Award-winning musical that was a huge hit on Broadway will have you tapping your toes and rolling in the aisles with laughter.

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

“It’s a rare evening when a musical makes me laugh out loud and often, but it happened last night."
     -The London Evening-Standard.

“Well, this unexpected new musical is more than good. It’s a smashing, witty, and brilliantly staged show, and I enjoyed every mad minute of it. Put it this way: If you don’t end up loving The Drowsy Chaperone, there’s no hope for the world.”
     -The New York Observer.
