The curtain rises on a present-day musical theater fanatic eager to tell about his favorite Broadway musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. He’s the ultimate Everyfan.
As he begins listening to the cast recording, the show cleverly blooms to life, telling the comedic tale of a pampered Broadway bride-to-be starlet (accompanied by her Chaperone), her debonair fiancé, an overzealous producer, a dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a couple of bumbling gangsters. Ruses are played. Hi-jinks occur. And the plot spins into musical comedy.
