at The Novello

Well, some people will be getting their sleep soon. The American transplanted The Drowsy Chaperone will be closing up shop on Saturday August 4. The show opened at the Novello on May 14.

As Kevin McCollum, one of the producers put it, "...London ticket sales have been slower than needed to sustain a longer run at the Novello."

The show stars Summer Strallen, Nick Holder, John Partridge , Nickolas Grace and Anne Rogerts, among others. Elaine Paige plays the Drowsy Chaperone. The book is by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison.

As our theaternewsonline reviewer Clive Hirschhorn wrote, " the musical is an affectionate look back in nostalgia to the anything-goes world of Jerome Kern, de Sylva , Brown and Henderson and Vincent Youmans."
