Under its enigmatic title lurks a remarkably entertaining little show. The Drowsy Chaperone is a droll Canadian import that's part homage to the musical theater part spoof. Narrated by the unnamed Man in Chair (Bob Martin) the show basically reenacts a 1920s musical named "The Drowsy Chaperone." This allows the creative team to match an inspired collection of familiar 1920s types---the flapper (Sutton Foster) the cad (Troy Britton Johnson) the zinger-slinging diva (Beth Leavel) the Latin lothario (Danny Burstein) the zany character actors (Georgia Engel Edward Hibbert)---with witty well-crafted pastiches of songs of that era. Penned by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison the tunes are instantly hummable while the ensemble cast is uniformly superb---you know the standard is high when the awesome Sutton Foster doesn't even stand out that much. Thankfully the "meta" concept doesn't lead to arch-irony and detachment. A genuine affection for what makes musicals so fun shines throughout making this a real keeper of an album.
