42nd Street – Theatre Royal Drury Lane
If you like an all-singing, all-dancing, showbiz musical, this glamorous and glitzy show will be right up your (42nd) street!
The show tells the story of young Peggy Sawyer, the chorus line girl who gets a shot in the spotlight.
It’s 1933 and Peggy arrives in New York City to audition for Pretty Lady, Broadway’s new musical. After discovering she has missed the auditions Peggy is befriended by the writer and chorus girls and she shows them a dance routine. The director, Julian, sees her routine and offers her a part in the chorus line.
On opening night a cast members bumps into Peggy and she trips, knocking into the leading lady, who breaks her ankle. Peggy is immediately fired and heads home for Pennsylvania. It looks like the show will have to close without its star. The chorus girls rally and persuade Julian that Peggy could fill the role. He rushes to find her at Broad Street Station, but can he persuade her to come back and take the starring role in the show?
42nd Street features a raft of iconic songs including ‘We’re In The Money’, ‘Lullaby Of Broadway’, and ‘I Only Have Eyes For You’. It’s a toe-tapping, feel-good spectacle of a show, featuring the West End’s biggest cast at the awe inspiring Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
