An Icon returns to the Theatre Royal

In 2017, the West End sees one of Broadway's original high-kicking musicals return to London. 42nd Street will sing and dance its way back into the Theatre Royal Drury Lane - arriving over 30 years after it made its West End debut on that very same stage! The one and only Sheena Easton will lead a cast of over 50 telling the iconic story of a chorus girl who gets a shot at fame when the star of the shows is injured.

Mark Bramble will helm this production, bringing with him all the successes of his 2001 Broadway revival - including several Tony nominations and a Tony Award win! Casting hasn't been announced just yet, but we'll be one of the first to know when it has. With iconic songs like Lullaby of Broadway, Dames, and We're In The Money, 42nd Street is a timeless homage to the roaring years of Broadway and the theatre business.

What is 42nd Street about?

In 42nd Street, we follow Peggy Sawyer (Claire Halse), an aspiring Broadway actress who arrives on the Great White Way fresh from small-town USA. When she makes the chorus of a brand-new musical, she has much more than just her own insecurities to tackle, including jealousy from the production's leading lady, a megalomanic director, and a casanova leading man who won't take no for an answer!

Did you know?

The original West End production of 42nd Street in the 1980s is where Catherine Zeta-Jones got her big break! In a true case of art-imitating-life, she was a chorus girl who took over the lead role when both the main actress and her understudy were absent, and consequently caught the eye of a producer in the audience!
