Susan Barrett http://publicradiotulsa.org en TU's Theatre Department Presents "The Drowsy Chaperone" http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/tus-theatre-department-presents-drowsy-chaperone <p>On today&#39;s show, we hear from Susan Barrett, an associate professor in the TU Department of Theatre and Musical Theatre. Barrett is directing a new production of the Tony Award-winning musical, &quot;The Drowsy Chaperone,&quot; which opened on Broadway in 2006. As Barrett tells us, this funny and terrifically fun-to-watch musical actually began as a spoof --- written for a wedding reception --- of old-time musicals . . . and of the out-dated styles, politically incorrect jokes, and wonderful, jazzy tunes that tend to define such musicals.
