Pat Sajak (left) returns to the Storrs campus after Felix Unger in CRT's recent production of The Odd Couple to partake of The Drowsy Chaperone, another odd coupling that finds Sajak playing a rabid musical theatre fan, one who makes the mistake of rocking out to a record of a 1920s musical cast recording. Naturally, all the players from that long-forgotten show, including the Chaperone herself (Tony Award nominee Liz Larsen, right, who does much more than turn letters on an oversized game board; pace Vanna), come to life. There's music, there's dance, and there's Pat Sajak: i.e., it has everything.
The Drowsy Chaperone
June 6-15, $10-$45, Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre, 802 Bolton Road, Storrs, (860) 486-2113, crt.uconn.edu.
