Greg Morrison (born 1965) is a Tony Award–winning and Drama Desk Award–winning Canadian writer and composer best known for his work on the music and lyrics of The Drowsy Chaperone, which he wrote with Lisa Lambert.[1] He also has extensive credits for directing and musical directing shows across the United States and Canada.[2] He is a recipient of a Canadian Comedy Award and a Sterling Award for Original Composition.

Morrison’s affiliation with The Drowsy Chaperone started in 1999 when Don McKellar and Lisa Lambert created a spoof of old musicals for the stag party before the wedding of their theatre friends Bob Martin and Janet Van De Graaff.
