Photos: The Duchess of Cambridge, Morgan Freeman & More at 42ND STREET West End Opening

Last night, musical 42nd Street opened at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London's West End. The show received a royal seal of approval from Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, who was given a pair of golden tap shoes by the producers and writer/director Mark Bramble. The Duchess attended the show in her role as Royal Patron of East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

42nd STREET is the song and dance, American dream fable of Broadway and includes some of the greatest songs ever written, such as 'We're In The Money', 'Lullaby of Broadway', 'Shuffle Off To Buffalo', 'Dames', 'I Only Have Eyes For You', and '42nd Street'.

Young Peggy Sawyer is 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... Read our review here

Other guests at the starry opening night included Morgan Freeman, Hannah Waddingham, Bonnie Langford, Adam Garcia, Arlene Phillips, and Strictly Come Dancing pros Neil and Katya Jones.
