This musical, a parody of 1920's musicals, begins with a middle-aged musical theater fan, who sits down to listen to his favorite musical, 'The Drowsy Chaperone'. As he listens, he sees the musical come to life in front of him. While the audience watches this musical, they also get to hear commentary from 'The Man in the Chair' about the show and its characters.
