42nd Street

The quintessential backstage musical comedy classic, "42nd Street" is the song and dance fable of Broadway with an American Dream story and includes some of the greatest songs ever written, such as "We're In The Money," "Lullaby of Broadway, "Shuffle Off To Buffalo," "Dames," "I Only Have Eyes For You" and of course "42nd Street."

Based on a novel by Bradford Ropes and Busby Berkeley's 1933 movie, "42nd Street" tells the story of a starry-eyed young dancer named Peggy Sawyer who leaves her Allentown home and comes to New York to audition for the new Broadway musical "Pretty Lady." When the leading lady breaks her ankle, Peggy takes over and becomes a star. With a book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Al Dubin, this sparkling new production will be directed by co-author Mark Bramble and choreographed by Randy Skinner, the team who staged the 2001 Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival.

“42nd Street is one of the great and timeless anthems of the indispensable art form known as American musical theater. An emotional, romantic show.” —Chicago Tribune
“A stage extravaganza.”— The New York Times
