Episode Details

Original tape date: April 21, 2006.

Originally created as a skit for a bachelor party, "The Drowsy Chaperone" has traveled from Toronto to Los Angeles to Broadway, growing in size along the way without sacrificing its skewed view of classic musicals. The ATW Working in the Theatre seminar will explore Chaperone's journey from one-off entertainment into that rarest of musicals—one not based on a book, play or movie.
