42nd Street is the biggest show in town

12 Apr 2017

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 street and book your seats now!
