BWW TV Exclusive: Watch Highlights from 42ND STREET at North Shore Music Theatre
The glamour, spectacle and fashion of 1930s Broadway comes to Bill Hanney's award-winning North Shore Music Theatre (NSMT) as a chorus girl from a small town aspires to find love and success on the Great White Way in the Tony Award-winning 42ND STREET, tapping across the NSMT main stage now through November 12, 2017. BroadwayWorld is excited to share exclusive highlights from the show below!
Based on the 1933 Busby Berkeley movie musical, 42ND STREET tells the story of a starry-eyed young actress named Peggy Sawyer who comes to audition for the new Julian Marsh-directed musical about to open on Broadway. While she can't seem to stay in the good graces of the show's aging leading lady Dorothy Brock, Peggy soon catches the eye of the famous director. On opening night, Ms. Brock breaks her ankle and panic spreads through the company as the show is doomed for closure - until it is suggested that Peggy take the role. In only 36 hours, Peggy becomes a star! With a book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Al Dubin, the memorable score includes "We're in the Money," "You're Getting to be a Habit With Me," "Lullaby of Broadway," and of course, "42nd Street."
The cast of 42ND STREET is led by Jacob ben Widmar as Billy Lawlor, Tari Kelly as Dorothy Brock, Burke Moses as Julian Marsh, and Jessica Wockenfuss as Peggy Sawyer.
