42nd Street - 1984 - West End

Based on a novel by Bradford Ropes and the 1933 Warner Bros.

A big…bright…bold dance musical. It’s the ultimate backstage showbiz fairy tale when a stage struck understudy becomes an overnight star. Filled with a hit parade of songs like “Lullaby of Broadway,” “We’re in the Money,” “Shuffle Off to Buffalo” and of course, “42nd Street,” it will leave you tapping your toes, with a smile on your face and a song in your heart. This Tony Award winner for Best Musical is a song and dance extravaganza.
