A monologue from the musical by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison (Based on the book by Bob Martin and Don Mckellar)
I hate this scene. You can see where this is going can’t you. It’s really just a series of spit takes. You know, in some ways the Drowsy Chaperone was quite progressive.
A black actress playing the Aviatrix, for instance. Yes, some elements were quite progressive, others were stale in 1928. (mopping the stage)
Now, you’re probably asking yourself, “what was that routine doing in the show?” Well, it’s very simple:
there’s a song coming up, and they needed something to allow for the set change. It’s mechanics. It’s like p*rnography.
(Continues mopping and notices that the audience doesn’t understand)
Let me explain what I meant by that. In p*rnography the story is simplistic, some classic examples being…
“how do I pay for this pizza” or “I am looking for a job, do you have any openings I might fit.” (Smiles in a shy and knowing way, then becomes self-conscious)
My point is, as in a musical, the story exists only to connect the longer, more engaging…production numbers. What?
Well, what kind of a society do we live in if we can’t discuss the similarities between p*rnography and musical theatre?
