Dust down your glad rags for one of the all-time top musicals — 42nd Street.
Packed with famous tracks, including Lullaby of Broadway, We’re In The Money, and one of the great showstoppers, 42nd Street itself, London West End stars Dave Willetts (Les Miserables) and Marti Webb (Evita) join forces to headline this show on it’s UK tour — with a week at the Kings Theatre running from June 26-30.
42nd Street debuted in 1980, winning two Tony Awards, as an adaptation of the 1933 movie of the same name. It relates the tale of how inexperienced-but-talented smalltown girl Peggy Swayer breaks into Broadway musicals with plenty of love (lorn and otherwise), confusion, cold hearts and warm friends.
With lavish sets to match the exhuberant and a strong cast, including two of the leading musical stars in Britain today, 42nd Street maintains its position as one of the most popular musicals.
From the famous opening shot (raised stage curtain revealing 40 pairs of tap-dancing feet) to the finale (Come and meet those dancing feet . . . ) 42nd doesn’t disappoint.
42nd Street, Tues, 26-Sat 30 June, Tickets: £15 - £35, Box Office 0844 871 7648 (bkg fee) here.
