42nd Street is the song and dance, American dream fable of Broadway.

Young Peggy Sawyer is fresh off the bus from small-town America and just another face in the chorus line on Broadway’s newest show. But when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy might just have the shot at stardom she’s always dreamed of...

This highly anticipated new production of 42nd Street arrives in London with an all-singing, high-kicking cast of over 50 ready to explode on to the West End’s biggest stage, Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Featuring the iconic songs We’re In The Money, Lullaby Of Broadway, Shuffle Off To Buffalo, Dames, I Only Have Eyes For You and 42nd Street.

Mark Bramble, co-author of the book for the original Broadway and West End productions of 42nd Street and director of the 2001 Tony Award® winning revival of 42nd Street, returns to direct the new West End production.
