    Winner of the 1981 Tony Award for Best Musical and the 2001 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, this highly anticipated production of 42nd Street is a dazzling and romantic homage to the world of musical theatre.

    Based on a novel by Bradford Ropes, 42nd Street follows Peggy Sawyer, a young woman fresh off the bus from small-town America and just another face in the chorus line on Broadway’s newest show. But when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy might just have the shot at stardom she's always dreamed of…

    42nd Street premiered on Broadway in 1980, where it played for over 3,400 performances. It was later revived in 2001 and played for another 1,500 performances at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts – making it the 14th longest running show in Broadway history.

    This highly anticipated new production of 42nd Street arrives in London with an all-singing, high-kicking cast of over 50 ready to explode on to the West End’s biggest stage, Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Mark Bramble, co-author of the book for the original Broadway and West End productions of 42nd Street and director of the 2001 Tony Award® winning revival of 42nd Street, returns to direct the new West End production.

    Previously in London 32 years ago (also at Theatre Royal Drury Lane), 42nd Street features music by Harry Warren, lyrics by Al Dubin – and includes the iconic songs: Lullaby of Broadway, We're in the Money, Shuffle Off to Buffalo, Dames, Keep Young and Beautiful, I Only Have Eyes For You and the spectacular title number; 42nd Street.
