42nd Street: The Musical

“The mother of all showbiz musicals” –The Telegraph
“A high-speed, high-stakes, high-talent 42nd Street.” —Chris Jones, Chicago Tribute
This is a full-capacity screening.
Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania and her talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh. She gets a spot in the chorus of the musical within the musical, Pretty Lady. Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl. When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer!)
Filmed in 2018 at London’s Theatre Royal the production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble. This eye-watering extravaganza is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards (“Lullaby of Broadway," “We’re in the Money (the gold digger’s song), “42nd Street” and more), and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.
This production includes a 10-minute intermission.
