From the producers of hugely successful touring hits including Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, 42nd Street is the timeless, inspiring tale of small town Peggy Sawyer’s rise from chorus line to Broadway star.
Winner of the 1980 Tony Award for Best Musical and the 2001 Tony Award for Best Revival, 42ndStreet is a true classic. The tour is directed by the show’s author and Broadway director Mark Bramble, and features the stunning sets and costumes from the Broadway revival.
The memorable score of hit songs includes ‘Lullaby of Broadway’, ‘We’re In The Money’, and one of the great showstoppers, ‘42nd Street’, danced down a flight of steps that light up as bright as the faces of the cast. Audiences are taken to musical comedy heaven with breathtaking routines and glorious choreography. 42nd Street remains the greatest tap dancing musical of all time.
