A `Drowsy' Musicalmore...
by MALCOLM JOHNSON, special to the Hartford Courant
The intermissionless musical, which opened Monday night at the Marquis Theatre, uses Martin's chair man as aguide to the musicals of the '20s, with special attention to the all-but-forgotten (and totally invented) "The Drowsy Chaperone." Initially slapped together to fete the real life upcoming wedding of Martin and comedian Janet Van De Graaff, the musical-within-a-monologue centers on the upcoming fictional marriage of Foster's character, a star who no longer wants to show off. The name of the top headliner of the Feldzieg Follies is none other than Janet Van De Graaff.
