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 the 1933 movie by Busby Berkeley, 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.  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.
