Classic musical 42nd Street opened at the Theatre Royal Drury
Lane on 4th April with enthusiastic five-star reviews for what is
currently the biggest show in London’s West End on London’s biggest stage. With a cast of over 50 performers, this all
singing all (tap) dancing musical has one of the greatest chorus lines we’ve
seen in the past few years and the energy is contagious!
Based on the 1933 Busby Berkeley movie, 42nd Street is a
classic American dream fable of Broadway. This sophisticated and witty
backstage musical tells the story of small town girl Peggy Sawyer, who sees her
chance to come out of the chorus line when the leading lady of the Broadway show
she’s playing in gets injured. This could be for her the long-awaited occasion
to reach the stardom she’s always dreamed of.
Starring Grammy Award
winner Sheena Easton as primadonna Dorothy Brock, Tom Lister as director Julian
Marsh and Clare Halse as Peggy Sawyer, 42nd Street is directed by Mark
Bramble, co-author of the book for the original 1980s Broadway and West End
productions and director of the 2001 Tony Award winning revival. As if this wasn’t enough, the show features some of the most iconic songs of musical
theatre like “We’re In The Money”, “Shuffle Off To Buffalo”, “Lullaby of
Broadway”, “Dames”, “I Only Have Eyes
For You” and “42nd Street”.
Enjoy this joyful and
shiny classic musical that pays homage to a vanished glittery world of
razzle-dazzle. Check the availability for cheap tickets for 42nd
