WhatsOnStage logo
Whatsonstage.com brings you the very first images from the West End production of Broadway hit The Drowsy Chaperone starring Elaine Paige.

The Tony Award-winning musical opens next week (6 June 2007, previews from 14 May) at the Novello Theatre and has lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison and a book by Bob Martin (pictured reprising his Broadway role as Man in Chair).

John Partridge and Anne Rogers also star in this smart comedy about a lonely man who hides from the harshness of reality by sharing with the audience his all-time favourite 1928 musical about a wedding thrown into chaos, The Drowsy Chaperone.

Images are by Catherine Ashmore and feature Summer Strallen as glamour-puss Janet Van De Graaf, Bob Martin as Man in Chair, and of course the irrepressible Elaine Paige as the world’s wisest but most irresponsible drunken chaperone.

You can hear Elaine Paige talking to Whatsonstage.com's Roger Foss about her West End return for The Drowsy Chaperone by clicking on WOS Radio. Also speaking with Roger are the stars of Fame the Musical - Ian H Wakins and Natalie Casey - who are currently appearing at the Shaftesbury Theatre.
