Classic Broadway Tuner 42nd Street
Considered one of the quintessential Broadway musicals, 42nd Street first made its mark on the Great White Way when it debuted to rapturous acclaim at NYC's Winter Garden Theatre in June, 1980. The Tony-winning production has since enjoyed long-running success in the form of multiple revivals around in the world. Don't miss the legendary jukebox musical at St. Paul's Ordway Center for the Performing Arts during a strictly limited run this Summer!
The product of a three million dollar investment by theatre mogul David Merrick, 42nd Street capitalised on the nostalgia of musical theatre's golden age, bringing the depression era-tale to life with enough razzle dazzle to make it one of Broadway's longest running tuners. Classic songs like We're In The Money, Lullaby of Broadway and the title track tell the story of underdog Peggy Sawyer, an actress with big dreams who lands the role of her dreams in respected Broadway director Julian Marsh's last hurrah. Love triangles, jealousy and sequins ensue - that's showbiz for you!
