Ohio University welcomes Broadway musical "The Drowsy Chaperone"
Jan 20, 2010
From staff reports
The most celebrated musical of the 2006 Broadway season, "The Drowsy Chaperone," a completely original musical comedy, is coming to Athens Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 7:30 p.m. as part of the 2009-10 Performing Arts Series.
"The Drowsy Chaperone" received more Tony Awards® than any other musical of the 2006 season, including best book, original score, costume design and scenic design.
"The Drowsy Chaperone" tells the story of a modern day musical theater addict known simply as "Man in Chair." To chase his blues away he drops the needle on his favorite LP ? the 1928 musical comedy, "The Drowsy Chaperone."
From the crackle of his hi-fi, the musical magically bursts to life on-stage telling the tale of a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the nuptials, her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorine, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters who double as pastry chefs.
Tickets for the performance may be purchased at the Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium ticket office. The ticket office is open from noon to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and one hour before the show.
Tickets can also be purchased online. For tickets or more information, please call 740-593-1780 or visit The Performing Arts Web site at www.ohio.edu/performingarts.
