See the Drowsy Chaperone | Letters

The audience on the opening night of “The Drowsy Chaperone” couldn’t have been more enthusiastic. They loved the energetic tap dance to the tune of “Make Cold Feet Hot,” the first song by the character named The Drowsy Chaperone brought prolonged applause, “Lido Surprise” was a typical “big production” number, and the second act opened with a marvelously ridiculous number involving the entire cast.

You probably have not heard of this musical before, but you will be missing a performance as good as “Chicago” and “Beauty and the Beast” if you don’t immediately purchase tickets for the remaining 10 performances.

Without giving away the surprise, pay attention to the refrigerator in the first act. Yes, you read that correctly.
