5 Stars!  A wow factor revival of one of the greatest musicals of all time” – The Times (London)

Captured live from the London stage and directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble, 42nd Street is one of Broadway’s most classic and beloved tales. Full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards including “Lullaby of Broadway”, “We’re in the Money”, “42nd Street” and more, plus show-stopping ensemble production numbers. The beloved musical, set in 1933, tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway. Peggy arrives in New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania and her talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director, Julian Marsh.  She gets a spot in the chorus of the musical-within-a-musical, Pretty Lady. Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl. When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found – someone like Peggy Sawyer! (Total running time: 135 mins., includes one intermission, PG rating equivalent)
