In The Drowsy Chaperone, according to press notes, “the audience will join the ’man in chair’ as he plays his favorite musical recording — The Drowsy Chaperone. The audience sees the musical’s characters come to life in a show within the show, and enjoys the man’s asides and tidbits as he watches his favorite musical along with us.”

Other members of the creative team include Jeffrey Meek as costume designer, Helena Kuukka as lighting designer, Anthony Risi as sound designer and Courtney Strong as props designer.
