West End glitterati Dave Willets and Marti Webb bring Broadway razzamatazz to the Lyceum Theatre from today 12 to Saturday 16 June with the legendary musical 42nd Street.
42nd Street, winner of the 1980 Tony Award for Best Musical, brings the magic of old Broadway to life in the timeless and inspiring tale of small town Peggy Sawyer’s rise from chorus line to stardom. Fresh from Pennsylvania, Peggy gets caught up in the drama and delight of 1930’s show business as she debuts in the latest musical Pretty Lady. Peggy’s journey is fraught with backstage intrigue and inflated egos as she negotiates the show’s diva and notorious director.

With dazzling sets, glamorous costumes and well-known hits We’re in the Money¸ Keep Young and Beautiful and the showstopping title number, this sensational production promises all the sparkle and spectacle of New York City.
