From our teen correspondent

I recently had to opportunity to see The Drowsy Chaperone at TBPAC. It didn't take 30 minutes of watching for The Drowsy Chaperone to quickly climb to the top of my favorite Broadway shows list! Between the clever script, phenomenal cast, and creative scene changes, it's easy to get hooked! At the opening of the show I fell in love with the narrator reminiscing about a "record" that often played at his house throughout his childhood. Soon, the whole stage breaks out into song, dance, and banter. The production as a whole reflects the traditional Broadway style. Each of the characters is quirky and unique which makes the show very intriguing. The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical suitable for audiences young and old as the plot is not complicated, yet witty and colorful. Although The Drowsy Chaperone has left TBPAC for this year, you'd better pray it comes back next season so you don't miss out twice!

I am now gearing up to see Jersey Boys! I learned this music listening to oldies stations, and now I can't stop listening. It doesn't matter what age you are, Frankie Valli speaks to you!
