    Descriptive info: The Drowsy Chaperone - Spring 2013.. Music and Lyrics by: Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison.. Brief History :.. Synopsis :.. Chaperone pays tribute to the Jazz-age shows of the 1920s and the power those shows held to transport us into a dazzling fantasy and to lift our spirits in times of sadness.. The audience is greeted by the narrator, Man in Chair, sitting on a darkened stage.. He is a fan of vintage musicals who seems to be suffering from free-floating depression, and he quickly decides to cheer things up by playing a record of the original cast recording of a (fictional) Broadway musical entitled "The Drowsy Chaperone".. No sooner has the needle touched the record than we, together with the narrator, are transported to a 1928 Broadway theatre and into "The Drowsy Chaperone", a play-within-a-play crammed full of every cliche, gag and gimmick from the golden age of musicals.. The estate of Mrs.. Tottendale (a wealthy dowager) is the site of an imminent wedding between showgirl Janet Van De Graff to oil tycoon Robert Martin.. We are introduced to a barrage of characters during an introductory opening number ("Fancy Dress"), including Mrs.. Tottendale and her Underling (a proper butler), dashing bridegroom Robert Martin, harried and bumbling best man George, producer Feldzeig (a thinly-disguised homage to legendary Broadway producer Florenz Zeigfeld), ditsy would-be showgirl ingenue Kitty, a pair of Gangsters disguised as the pastry chefs, Latin Lothario Adolpho (a Rudolph Valentino-type), Janet's Drowsy (i.. e.. "tipsy") Chaperone (whom we understand is being played by a rather overbearing and potent grand dame of the theatre), and Trix (a glamorous aviatrix a la Amelia Earhart).. Throughout the show, Man in Chair will continue to comment and explain the action with asides to the audience.. Feldzeig is agonizing over the fact that his top meal ticket, Janet, is leaving showbiz to get married.. The Gangsters, who are in the employ of one of Feldzeig's investors, pressure him to sabotage the wedding so that he can retain Janet's services as a performer.. Robert and George nervously prepare for the wedding ("Cold Feets").. George suggests that Robert blow off some steam by roller-skating.. In order to prevent Robert from accidentally seeing the bride before the wedding, he also provides Robert with a blindfold.. Janet is lounging by a pool while fielding questions from reporters.. Feldzeig arrives and attempts to convince her to reconsider the wedding, but she rebuffs him ("Show  ...   replacement.. The Gangsters arrive, angry that Feldzeig has not yet ruined the wedding.. He distracts them by convincing them that they have showbiz talent ("Toledo Surprise").. Aldolpho arrives to announce that the wedding is off because he has seduced the bride, but Feldzeig informs him that he has in fact seduced the Chaperone instead.. However, Janet arrives to announce that the wedding is indeed off because Robert "kissed a French girl.. " Feldzeig is ecstatic, and leads the company in another rendition of "Toledo Surprise".. At this point, Man in Chair attempts to play the record of the Second Act of the show.. However he mistakenly begins playing a song ("Message From a Nightingale") from a different musical entirely, causing the setting of the play to temporarily shift to an oriental palace, and all of the actors to assume new roles.. Man in Chair hurriedly corrects his mistake and The Drowsy Chaperone resumes.. Janet laments the collapse of her romance with Robert ("Bride's Lament") and decides to continue her life as a star showgirl.. Mrs.. Tottendale assures her Underling that the wedding preparations should continue regardless of the apparent disaster ("Love is Always Lovely").. She also makes it clear that she is in love with the Underling.. The Chaperone informs Janet that she intends to marry Adolpho.. Tottendale and the Underling announce that they plan to marry as well.. Robert arrives and asks Janet to reconsider and marry him after all.. She confesses that she was the French Girl he kissed and agrees that their wedding is back on.. Feldzeig is saved from the Gangsters by virtue of his new leading lady, Kitty (who is also, he reveals, his fiance).. There is great rejoicing in anticipation of the multiple weddings ("Wedding Bells #2").. George has neglected to arrange for a Minister, but fortunately Trix the Aviatrix arrives and it is decided that since she is technically the "captain" of a "ship" of sorts, she can officiate the weddings ("I Do, I Do in the Sky") and fly the wedding party to Rio for the Honeymoon.. The show is abruptly cut short by a power failure in Man in Chair's apartment.. As the Superintendent arrives to attend to the breakers, the Man explains his love for the show as an antidote to "the dreary horrors of the real world.. " The entire cast joins him onstage for the grand finale ("As We Stumble Along - Reprise")..

    Descriptive info: Bye Bye Birdie - Fall 2013.. BYE BYE BIRDIE played on Broadway for 607 performances at the Martin Beck Theatre and 268 performances in London at Her Majesty's Theatre.. BYE BYE BIRDIE is one of the most captivating musical shows of our time.. It tells the story of a rock and roll singer who is about to be inducted into the army.. The singer, Conrad Birdie, an Elvis Presley type, has a pompadour and thick sideburns; he wears gaudy gold costumes and speaks in a rugged voice.. Albert Peterson, his agent, is a very pleasant mild mannered young man.. Albert's faithful secretary Rose Alvarez keeps him and Birdie moving forward in the world.. Rosie concocts one final national publicity plan before Conrad's induction.. Conrad will bid a typical American teen-age girl goodbye with an all-American kiss.. Kim MacAfee in Sweet Apple, Ohio wins the honor.. All of the phones in her town are already busy during The Telephone Hour as Kim has just been pinned to Hugo, a local boy.. She is a pretty girl of fifteen and sings with springlike ardor How Lovely to Be a Woman, as she pulls on the plaid woolen socks and the baggy mustard colored sweater considered stylish  ...   Kim's father who laments the whole uproar, tries to break into the act and behaves like a ham on the TV show.. Hymn for a Sunday Evening is a salute to the greater glory of Ed Sullivan.. Birdie becomes disgusted with his life and goes out on the town with the teenagers.. He feels tense with Albert and is tired of being supervised.. The parents of Sweet Apple cannot understand the new generation and express this in Kids.. Rosie, still waiting for that band of gold from Albert after eight years, invades a Shriners' meeting.. An extremely hilarious ballet ensues.. She then decides to become the Latin American spitfire that she is painted as, by Albert's lead-footed catastrophe-ridden mother.. She is determined to become Spanish Rose.. Kim is reunited with Hugo, and Rose with Albert in the lovely number Rosie.. Other hit numbers include A Lot of Livin' to Do and Put on a Happy Face.. BYE BYE BIRDIE is a satire done with the fondest affection.. It gives an insight into the everyday life that is very much part of us all.. It is the tops in imagination and frivolity; a show that will be enjoyed by the cast as much as the audience..

    Descriptive info: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying - Spring 2014.. Book by Abe Burrows and Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert.. Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser.. When Shepherd Mead's book.. became a huge success, playwright Willie Gilbert and neurosurgeon Jack Weinstock wrote a dramatic adaptation in 1955.. The play remained unproduced until 1960, when theatrical agent Abe Newborn brought it to the attention of Broadway producers Cy Feuer and Ernest Martin, who thought the play could work as a musical.. Feuer and Martin had had a huge success with.. GUYS AND DOLLS.. in 1950 and asked the authors of that show, Abe Burrows and Frank Loesser, to write the adaptation.. Burrows and Loesser turned it into an hilariously cynical show, with songs as biting and satirical as the book from which they sprang (i.. the closest "love song" is sung by the main character to himself).. HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING.. rehearsals began in August, 1961, with Robert Morse (fresh from a Broadway success in Burrows' Say, Darling) as Finch, the ambitious window washer.. Rounding out the principal cast were Charles Nelson Reilly as Bud Frump (the  ...   at the 46th Street Theatre on October 14, 1961 to almost unanimous raves from the critics.. It ran a total of 1,417 performances, winning seven Tony Awards, a New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.. The West End.. opened on March 28, 1963 at the Shaftesbury Theatre.. Featuring a new London cast under Burrows' direction and Fosse's staging, it ran for 520 performances.. In 1967,.. was made into a film based on the musical.. Released by United Artists, it featured many of the original cast recreating their roles.. Power, sex, ambition, greed.. it's just another day at the office.. From the authors of.. comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musicals of all time.. A satire of big business and all it holds sacred,.. follows the rise of J.. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," the boss' whiny, nepotistic nephew, the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love..
