Backstage spy: ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’

UPDATE: And now, for your continued viewing pleasure, here’s the second installment in our video countdown to the closing weekend of “The Drowsy Chaperone”:

ORIGINAL POST: Faithful readers of this site know at least two things: I’m a big fan of the Broadway musical “The Drowsy Chaperone”; and I think the Good Company Players production of this warm and funny show is first-rate.

I’ll space them out over a three-day window by updating this post each day. For now, here’s the first, in which folks describe their favorite part of the show:


A reminder: “The Drowsy Chaperone” has just four performances remaining: Thursday, Nov. 9; Friday, Nov. 10; Saturday, Nov. 11; and closing on Sunday, Nov. 12. It’s not to be missed.
