‘The Drowsy Chaperone’ at Music Circus
Tuesday, July 9 to Sunday, July 14, various times, Broadway Sacramento at Music Circus, $45-$83
Do you like your 1920s musicals like to be like your favorite badly forged Picasso paintings—not really from the ’20s and parodying the subject? Then this meta-musical featuring a play within a play is calling your name. Originally performed in 1998, it’s making its Music Circus premiere. Concerning a hermit-esque “Man in Chair” character who’s also a Broadway enthusiast—played by Bruce Vilanch in this production—the comedy will take many turns and make fun of roaring musical comedies of the 1920s. 1419 H Street, broadwaysacramento.com.
