Description Geoffrey Rush stars as a die-hard musical theatre fan who invites us into his dreary living room. As he drops the needle on his all-time favourite album, an outrageously funny musical from the 1920s, The Drowsy Chaperone, bursts into life complete with a pampered starlet, gangsters, chorus girls and all manner of mayhem. A trip back to the golden age of musicals when stars had charisma, Broadway had romance and Rodgers had Hart.
