Celebrate all things Broadway and musical theatre with 42nd Street tickets to witness this spectacular revival
Bonnie Langford stars in the multi-award winning musical 42nd Street, playing in the West End’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Featuring a cast of 50 fabulous singers and dancers, this revival of a Broadway classic continues to wow audiences with its timeless songs and titillating tap routines. Based on the classic American dream, 42nd Street follows young hopeful Peggy Sawyer, a small-town dancer who travels to New York with the hopes of becoming an actress.
When Peggy lands a role in the chorus line of a new Broadway production, she dreams of playing a bigger part in the show. With a stroke of luck, the snappy, infamous leading actress gets injured, giving Peggy the opportunity to prove herself as a star of the stage. Featuring well-known songs such as “We’re in the Money”, “Lullaby of Broadway”, “Shuffle Off to Buffalo” and the toe-tapping “42nd Street”, this musical is sure to have audiences dancing in their seats!
One of Broadway’s biggest and longest-running shows, 42nd Street originally opened at the Winter Garden Theatre, impressing audiences and critics alike. Revived in 2001 by Mark Bramble on Broadway, and once again in 2015 for a US tour, 42nd Street returned in 2017. Adapted into a well-known 1933 Hollywood film starring Ruby Keeler and Ginger Rogers, the musical is based on the novel by Bradford Ropes.
This lavish new production is akin to the mega musicals of the 1980s, such as Les Miserables and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, with its vast set, opulent costumes, and a cast of over 50 on stage at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
