Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.
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.

Call on Seattle City Council to fund $3 million in street safety improvements in 2017.
A rash of serious injuries and fatalities on the streets of north Seattle has galvanized people to demand swift action. From 2015 to the present, there have been 24 serious injury collisions in north Seattle, six of them fatal.
In a normal year, two people lose their lives riding bikes in all of Seattle. In northeast Seattle, two people have been killed riding their bikes just in the past month.
Join Lake City Greenways, NE Seattle Greenways, Green Lake Greenways, Licton-Haller Greenways, Greenwood-Phinney Greenways, Maple Leaf Greenways and many other community groups and neighbors to highlighthese unsettlingly incidents.
They will gather on Sunday, October 9 at noon in front of the Northgate Community Center to remember the people whose lives have been altered by or lost to traffic violence. The gathering will raise awareness and ask city leaders to put money in the budget to construct street safety improvements.“Northeast Seattle is experiencing a shocking level of traffic violence,” said Cathy Tuttle, director of the traffic safety organization Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. “We’ve mapped where collisions have happened in the northeast and believe many streets could be fixed with modest but effective safety engineering. The City has identified 100 places that could use spot improvements, and people throughout Seattle have documented another 300 street safety concerns. Let’s get the funding in place so we can fix these places. Waiting longer to improve our streets has deadly consequences.”
Seattle has committed to Vision Zero (zero serious injuries or fatalities by 2030), but the $2.4 million budgeted for a life-saving agenda is not sufficient. Neighbors are gathering to say #WeCantWait for more serious injuries and fatalities to spur City action.
