In association with Hayes Theatre Co, Squabbalogic announces the Tony Award-winning show, The Drowsy Chaperone. Set in a New York apartment, this “small quirky ensemble show” reveals the tale of a die-hard musical theatre fan who plays his favourite Broadway cast album on his turntable. The musical literally bursts to life in his living room and is transformed into an impressive Broadway set.

Director Jay James-Moody guarantees a “Contemporary tongue-in-cheek musical as well as a very funny old-fashioned musical within one show.”

An energetic production like this being performed at the new Hayes Theatre Co Potts Point location, provides a much more intimate theatrical experience for the audience.

The Drowsy Chaperone debuted in Toronto in 1998 and opened in Broadway in 2006. In 2014, this show “Looks at a type of musical from a time gone by in a very affectionate way,” says James-Moody who plays the role of Carrie.

Jay James-Moody promises an amazing intimate show with a star-studded cast of Sydney’s finest musical talent. (CT)
