Old meets new on Rialto

'Drowsy' wakes up auds

Rialto tuner “The Drowsy Chaperone” is a valentine to good old-fashioned Broadway, and sharing in the love at the show’s opening night May 1 were the newfangled stars of contemporary Broadway.

Michael Cerveris, Nellie McKay, Brian Stokes Mitchell, John Lloyd Young, Shuler Hensley, Joanna Gleason, Victoria Clark and Kelli O’Hara were spotted in the appreciative aud.

Curtain call saw the distribution of plush monkeys — a nod to an extended comic number in the show — to the entire cast, including stars Bob Martin, Sutton Foster and Georgia Engel.

Afterwards it was off to Tavern on the Green to celebrate a smooth opening night. “Although I’m still not sure what a drowsy chaperone is,” joked producer Kevin McCollum.
