Why See 42nd Street?
We're in the Money!
Travel back in time to the golden age of the Broadway musical in the spectacular 42nd Street. Full of Busby Berkley-esque numbers and larger than life characters, this musical is set during the great depression, and follows Pennsylvania native Peggy Sawyer on her quest to land a role in the Great White Way's hottest new show. Along the way she encounters tyrannical directors, prima donnas past their prime, and plenty of backstage romance.
While it's based on the 1933 movie of the same name, 42nd Street first debuted on Broadway in 1980, where it won a Tony and ran for over 3000 performances. Among its many famous numbers are 'We're in the Money,' 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams,' and 'I Only Have Eyes For You.'
Opening night: 22 March 2018
