Review: 42ND STREET at Goodspeed Opera House Photo Review: 42ND STREET at Goodspeed Opera House
by Ariana Straznicky-Packer - Oct 22, 2022

Though I’m a huge musical fan, the 1933 film never really made a big impression on me. When I heard 42nd Street was coming to The Goodspeed, I hoped it would change my mind. Spoiler alert: It absolutely did! The timeless musical is a perfect addition to the season. It’s charming and delightful, as well as substantial.
