42nd Street runs through November 6th.

Goodspeed Musicals has released production photos for the blockbuster tap dancing extravaganza 42nd Street. The toe-tapping crowd-pleaser runs from Sept. 16 - Nov. 6 at The Goodspeed in East Haddam, Conn.

This fresh, new production, a love letter to Broadway is the ultimate show biz fairy tale of the chorus kid who becomes an overnight star. A 1930s backstage musical packed with plenty of pizzazz, it will set your heart pounding with its rhythmically tapping feet and a hit parade of songs, including "Lullaby of Broadway," "We're In The Money," "Shuffle Off To Buffalo," and of course, "42nd Street." It's tap dance heaven!
