42nd Street Theatre Breaks are now available at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, completing the most recent Broadway takeover of London’s Theatreland that started with Aladdin and Dreamgirls, and now this fabulous production of 42nd Street.
Broadway’s Biggest Show on the West End’s Biggest Stage
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 in reknowned director Julian Marsh’s newest musical spectacular. But when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy might just have the shot at stardom she’s always dreamed of and finding unexpected romance along the way.
