42nd Street Returns To The West End
Dec 1, 2016
Here at Celebrate in London we are excited to announce musical comedy classic 42nd Street is to return to the West End in March 2017 at its oldest theatre, the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. The spectacular and romantic homage to the world of musical theatre, 42nd Street is set to once again dazzle Londons West End from Monday 20 March 2017 with its legendary score and all-singing, all-dancing, cast of over 50 performers, with direction from the show’s author Mark Bramble. Having scooped both the Tony and Olivier Awards for Best New Musical upon its inception in the 1980s, the timeless musical features some of the greatest theatrical songs ever written, including We’re In The Money, I Only Have Eyes For You, Lullaby Of Broadway, Shuffle Off To Buffalo and, of course, 42nd Street. Telling the story of a young, fresh-faced performer, Peggy Sawyer, who gets on the bus hoping to make her dreams come true on Broadway, an unexpected chance to elevate her fortunes from chorus line to leading lady is suddenly thrust upon her. Can she grasp the stardom she’s always dreamed of? 42nd Street follows the conclusion of four golden years of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the iconic venue, with the Sam Mendes-directed and Olivier Award-winning musical booking until 7 January before embarking on a UK tour.
