About the showBroadway’s biggest show has arrived on the West End’s biggest stage in 2017, as 42nd Street plays at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in a vibrant new revival of the classic American rags-to-riches story.
42nd Street is the quintessential backstage musical; an exciting song and dance-filled tale of dreaming of stardom on Broadway. It is not the first time the show has been at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane either, with its 1984 run receiving huge acclaim and launching the career of the Hollywood star, Catherine Zeta-Jones.
The musical follows a young Peggy Sawyer, who leaves behind her small American home town in order to find a role on the Broadway stage. Despite being just another girl in the chorus line, when the show’s demanding lead gets unfortunately injured, Peggy gets her chance to follow her dream and take centre stage…
This highly anticipated revival of 42nd Street comes to London with an all-singing, high-kicking cast of over 50 performers. Sheena Easton stars in the role of Dorothy Brock alongside Emmerdale's Tom Lister as Julian Marsh, Clare Halse as Peggy Sawyer, Jasna Ivir as Maggie Jones, Norman Bowman as Pat Denning, Stuart Neal as Billy Lawlor, Graeme Henderson as Andy Lee, Christopher Howell as Bert Barry, Bruce Montague as Abner Dillon, Mark McKerracher as Mac/Doc/Thug and Emma Caffrey as Annie.
Featuring classic songs, such as "We’re In the Money", "Shuffle Off to Buffalo", "Dames", "Lullaby of Broadway", and the show-stopping title track "42nd Street", the show guarantees all the glitz and glamour of any Broadway outing.
Directed by Mark Bramble, who was the original co-author of the book and revived the production in 2001, 42nd Street features choreography by Randy Skinner, the man who worked on Gower Champion’s 1980 landmark original production, as well as previously having worked on the 2001 revival.
42nd Street brings the magic of Broadway back to the West End stage in this all-singing, all-dancing new production. With performances beginning in March 2017 at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, the magical musical continues to tap to sold-out London audiences.
Who Should See It?42nd Street with its huge cast and even bigger numbers is perfect for anyone who loves an impressive all-singing, all-dancing Broadway classic. Those who enjoyed the recent revival of A Chorus Line should definitely check out this new show for a similar spectacle.
The show is brilliant and entertaining for all ages and is ideal for families, however it may not be suitable for some children under 5 years old and babes-in-arms are not admitted to the theatre.
