The Colony Theatre (555 N. Third St., Burbank, California 91582) is located at the corner of 3rd Street and Cypress Avenue, and shares a parking garage with the Burbank Town Center Mall, where there is plenty of free parking as well as EV charging and Tesla Superchargers. The building is in the middle of a well lighted, secure shopping area, within easy walking distance of a number of excellent restaurants. The Colony Theatre is "freeway close" as it is right off the I-5 freeway.

Once you arrive:

Enter the parking garage on Third Street, between Cypress and Magnolia. (The sign says "East Garage, 501 N. 3rd Street" and is located next to Burlington Coat Factory) You will be on level 4, which is the one you want. Follow the signs to the Colony Theatre that you will see overhead. Drive to the end of the aisle and make a right. Drive to the end of that aisle and make another right. The theatre entrance is at Section 4e, in the northeast corner of the garage.

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.

With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

Hailed by New York Magazine as "The Perfect Broadway Musical," The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.

Original Broadway production of The Drowsy Chaperone produced by Kevin McCollum, Roy Miller, Bob Boyett, Stephanie McClelland, Barbara Freitag and Jill Furman.
