"Come and meet, those dancing feet. On the avenue I'm taking you to, 42nd Street." That, in case you didn't know, are lyrics from the title song from 42nd Street. The show, first premiered on the Great White Way in August 1980, where it ran for a total of 3,486 performances.
The London production, which opened in 1984, featured teenager and future Academy and Tony Award winner Catherine Zeta-Jones in the chorus.
Who by the way went on to play leading lady Peggy Sawyer later on in the run. This new production, is scheduled to open on
March 20, 2017 at it's original home, London's Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
Not only that, but it is being directed by book writer Mark Gamble, who directed the 2001 Tony Award winning revival. Tickets for the show are not yet on sale. However you can guarantee that when they do, we will be selling them. In fact we sell every show or event in London. Who knew? Get your tickets to see 42nd Street next Spring in the West End. Until next time theatre fans.
