Can you hear those dancing feet? The spectacular 42nd Street stages a revival

The classic song-and-dance spectacular 42nd Street is making a comeback in a new production announced today.

The Curve and Sadler’s Wells production of the musical will open at Curve theatre, Leicester in May followed by a season at Sadler’s Wells ahead of a UK tour with touring dates to be announced soon.

This new production will be directed by Jonathan Church (Singin’ in the Rain, The Drifters Girl) with choreography and design by Olivier Award winners Bill Deamer and Rob Jones. 

The show features a hit parade of toe-tapping songs, including the title number, We’re In The Money, Lullaby of Broadway, Shuffle Off To Buffalo and I Only Have Eyes For You.

42nd Street is a timeless and inspiring showbiz fairy tale that combines breath-taking tap dance routines, backstage intrigue, classic romance and delightful comedy to dazzling effect.

 Fresh off the bus from small-town America, young and beautiful Peggy Sawyer arrives in New York City dreaming of her name in lights. 

She quickly catches the eye of a big-time director and lands a spot in the chorus line of Broadway’s newest show…and when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy gets her shot at stardom.

 42nd Street is a larger-than-life celebration of musicals and the irrepressible spirit of Broadway. 

It has music by Harry Warren, lyrics by Al Dubin, and book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, based on the novel by Bradford Ropes.

Playing at Leicester Curve from May 18 – June 3 and  Sadler’s Wells from June 7 to July 2.
