Broadway's golden age musical satire arrives for the holidays!

Why See 42nd Street?

Back for the 2017/18 holiday season!

Kicking off the 2017/18 holiday season, Drury Lane presents their own staging of Broadway favorite, 42nd Street! A knowing look into the world of Broadway, this show revolves around the attempts of theatre director Julian Marsh to stage a lavish musical during the Great Depression. The score, by Al Dubin and Harry Warren, features classics such as We're in the Money and I Only Have Eyes For You. Fun for the whole family, harken back to the olden days for a comical look at Broadway behind the scenes! One of the few shows to be based on an original movie musical, it was a long-running hit and won two Tony Awards when it premiered in 1980, enjoying a successful revival in 2001 and going on a national tour during 2016.

Pennsylvania native Peggy Sawyer has just arrived in the city and is desperate for a shot at the big time, auditioning for Broadway's newest show, Pretty Lady. Innitially rejected by the show's choreographer, director Julian Marsh decides to hire her after witnessing her impromptu routine for some of the other dancers. So Peggy steps into the backstage drama of a big Broadway musical, a showbiz world that's full of aging prima donnas secret affairs between co-stars and dictatorial directors.
