42nd Street is the musical comedy that celebrates Broadway and the thrill of show business! Featuring 14 show stopping production numbers including, "We're In The Money," "Lullaby of Broadway," "42nd Street," "Quarter to Nine," 40 tapping feet and over 200 jaw dropping costumes, this show delivers on every level. Aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer comes to the big city from Allentown PA, and soon lands her first big job in the ensemble of a glitzy new Broadway show. But when its star is injured, will Peggy be able to step in and save the show?

Producing Artistic Director, Brett Smock, adds, "The REV is proud to reopen its doors and reunite with our audiences after a two year absence. I can think of no better show than 42nd Street to celebrate that reunion and provide some much-needed happiness and musical theatre joy for our community. Come back to the Playhouse in our clean, safe environment and fall in love with the theatre all over again. Get your tickets now - cause they're selling fast!"

42nd Street is directed and choreographed by The REV's Producing Artistic Director, Brett Smock, which marks Smock's fourth production of the show here at the Playhouse. He is joined by a top-notch creative team including musical director, Jeff Theiss (Broadway: The Band's Visit, REV: 10 seasons), scenic designer Jeffrey Kmiec (Paramount Theatre: The Little Mermaid; REV: South Pacific), sound designer Kevin Heard (Broadway: All The Way, The Cherry Orchard; Rev: Ghost, Parade, From Here to Eternity), lighting designer Jose Santiago (REV: Grease, Holiday Inn, Mamma Mia!, Parade), costumes by Tiffany Howard (REV: Grease, Beehive!, Holiday Inn, Mamma Mia!, Guys and Dolls), and wig design by Alfonso Annotto (Broadway: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Putting it Together).
