Langham Court Theatre invites you to visit the shabby Manhattan apartment of a quirky, lonely gentleman known only as Man in Chair as he speaks directly to the audience about life, love and his favourite pasttime – live theatre.

The five-time, Tony Award-winning Canadian musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone with music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison is directed by Langham Court veteran Roger Carr (The History Boys, The Laramie Project).

Man in Chair welcomes the audience to listen along with him as he plays the album of his loved (fictional) 1928 musical comedy from musical theatre’s golden age called The Drowsy Chaperone.

As the needle falls, the fourth wall shatters and the musical comes to life around him.

The show previews tonight (Jan. 18), and opens Thursday, Jan. 19, running to Saturday, Feb. 4.

Preview night all tickets are two for $20. Jan. 24 and 31 are Tuesday Students and Seniors Nights two for $20. Single tickets are $19 and $17.
