The Drowsy Chaperone closes on Broadway

It was annouced yesterday that the Tony-award winner, The Drowsy Chaperone, will play its last performance on Broadway, Dec. 30. In total the show will have played 674 performances and 32 previews. It also picked up five 2006 Tony Awards, the most of any show in 2006; seven Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical; four Outer Critic's Circle Awards including Outstanding Score; and the Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Musical.

BTW, the well received national tour is still headed to Tampa in January as planned. The tour includes original Broadway cast members Georgia Engel as "Mrs. Tottendale" and Andrea Chamberlain as "Janet Van De Graaff" (who was the understudy for the role on Broadway).
