"If you want to get some idea of what it means to be over the moon for musical comedy, pay a visit to Broadway's Marquis Theatre, where a disarming, delightful soufflé called The Drowsy Chaperone, is making a strong case for song-and-dance obsession… The Drowsy Chaperone, delivers, not only as sparkling entertainment but, on another level, as a touching tribute to those often lonely folks out there in the dark who cheer on their favorite shows and stars."
SLINGS & ARROWS
“As far as I’m concerned, it’s the best TV show ever made about the messy, conflicting tensions of art and commercialism…It moves me. It makes me happy to love theater, and it makes me happier to love television.”
