A community pillar since 1956, the Iowa City Community Theatre has enlisted local dramatists to take to the stage for the fourth-wall-leaning musical farce The Drowsy Chaperone . A heartfelt and humorous examination of the interplay of life and art, the play depicts a devoted fan of musical theater as he literally slips into the world of his favorite cast album. As the comedic musical unfolds, audiences find themselves thoroughly bemused by the main character's constant footnoting of theatrical trivia, and English students flip frantically through encyclopedias to cite his sources. A nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering a love of theater in the community, ICCT reserves a spot for everybody—onstage, in the audience, or masked behind the subterranean organ.
