Drowsy Chaperone, The musical (2006)

The development of this musical began in 1997, when a few friends decided to make a creative mix of old and successful musicals and, based on them, to make a new one. Man in Chair was not only the character. In his head, events are born, but also he is a storyteller. The original version was as a little play, for less than 100 spectators. Then one of the producers has made it to the hall of 160 people, and after the subsequent success, expanded it to 1,000 viewers. All these production were in Toronto, and then it was decided to move a show to New York, where in 2004 it opened as first readings, preparation for Broadway. Bosses at the Broadway liked the idea and staging has begun as a full-scale readings and after a preview in the Ahmanson Theatre in 2005, in Los Angeles, it was transferred to Broadway in 2006, following some changes. The opening took place in Marquis Theatre and closed after pretty nice 674 nominal displays. Actors: J. Kravits, B. Saget, B. Martin, J. Smith, S. Foster, L. Wolpe, G. Engel, D. Burstein, E. Hibbert, E. Korbich, B. Leavel, G. Kravits & T. B. Johnson.

Arrival in the West End was in 2007 and it closed after only 100 exhibitions. Even the main role by Elaine Paige did not save a musical from cool reception. Despite this, however, the musical was back in the West End in 2013, with a different people – N. French, J. Partridge, S. Pemberton, S. Strallen, S. Perrington, J. Alessi, M. Goldthorpe, A. Rogers, P. Iveson, N. Grace, N. French, N. Holder, C. Jack, S. Chilton, A. Stafford & S. Kingsley. Due to the reduction of the cost on the most expensive places in the first row, production on West End reduced the enthusiasm of the actors, and it closed down six months earlier than originally planned.
