“...If you’re looking for a festive family outing...42nd Street delivers the goods along with lots of glitz.” - Chicago Arts

The ultimate show-biz musical, the Tony Award-winner for Best Musical, 42nd Street is a celebration of Broadway, Times Square, and the people who make the magic of musical theatre. Who better than our Mainstage creative team to put on this show?

Set in the early 1930s, aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer comes to the big city from Allentown PA, and soon lands her rst big job in the ensemble of a glitzy new Broadway show. But just before opening night, the leading lady breaks her ankle. Peggy might just have a shot at stardom!

42nd Street includes some of the greatest songs ever written, such as “We’re In The Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” ‘Shuffle Off To Buffalo,” and “42nd Street.”

Complete with big, flashy tap dances and a Broadway ballet finale, we can’t wait to dazzle you with this outstanding production!
