The quintessential backstage musical comedy classic, 42nd STREET is the song and dance fable of Broadway with an American Dream story and includes some of the greatest songs ever written, sure as “We’re in the Money,” Lullaby of Broadway,” Shuttle Off to Buffalo,” “Dames,” “I Only Have Eyes for You” and of course “42nd Street.”
Based on a novel by Bradford Ropers and Busby Berkeley’s 1933 movie, 42nd STREET tells the story of a starry-eyed young dancer named Peggy Sawyer who leaves her Allentown home and comes to New York to audition for the new Broadway musical Pretty Lade. When the star breaks her ankle, Peggy takes over and because a star. With a book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble and choreographed by Randy Skinner, the team who staged the 2011 Tony Award®-winning Best Musical Revival.
