Why See 42nd Street?

MusicalsOlivier NomineesCheap Theatre2018 Olivier Nominees

the iconic musical tours the uk!

Following its recent revival on the West End, 42nd Street sings and dances its way to the UK! A dazzling cast of over 50 tells the iconic story of a chorus girl who gets a shot at fame when the star of the show is injured, featuring iconic tunes including 'We're In The Money' and 'Lullaby of Broadway'.

What is 42nd Street about?

In 42nd Street, we follow Peggy Sawyer, an aspiring Broadway actress who arrives on the Great White Way fresh from small-town USA. When she makes the chorus of a brand-new musical, she has much more than just her own insecurities to tackle, including jealousy from the production's leading lady, a megalomanic director, and a casanova leading man who won't take no for an answer!

Did you know?

The original West End production of 42nd Street in the 1980s is where Catherine Zeta-Jones got her big break! In a true case of art-imitating life, she was a chorus girl who took over the lead role when both the main actress and her understudy were absent, and consequently caught the eye of a producer in the audience!

What we thought

Glitter BROADWAY pizazz!

if you're looking for something with heart and pizzazz, and you've got a little time to spare, head on down to Forty-Second Street.

Plot be damned! 42nd Street is an exciting extravaganza, bursting with zinging one-liners, bucketfuls of glitter and tremendous talent. Self-referential and gloriously staged, I fully fell for this one.
