Based on the 1932 novel by Bradford Ropes and the subsequent 1933 Hollywood film adaptation, 42nd Street is a Tony and Olivier Award winning musical with lyrics by Al Dubin and Johnny Mercer and music by Harry Warren. In addition to songs from the 1933 film 42nd Street, it includes songs that Dubin and Warren wrote for many other films at around the same time.
The musical is set at the height of the Great Depression and tells the story of talented young performer Peggy Sawyer. With stars in her eyes and armed with her tap shoes, Peggy arrives in New York City from her hometown in Pennsylvania. Her talent catches the eye of famed Great White Way (Broadway) director Julian Marsh, who gives her a role in the chorus of Pretty Lady, a musical he is attempting to mount. Pretty Lady stars Dorothy Brock, a diva whose best days are behind her, and who dislikes Peggy instantly. When Dorothy is injured shortly before the show opens, Julian is persuaded to have Peggy take the leading role. Peggy’s rise from showgirl to star is the stuff of show business dreams.
42nd Street is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards, and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.
