42ND STREET ARRIVES IN THE WEST END MARCH 2017 (8 AUGUST 2016)

42nd Street, the quintessential backstage musical comedy classic, is to play the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane from Monday 20 March 2017. Tickets are now on sale.

This new production - a dazzling and romantic homage to the world of musical theatre - arrives in London with an all-singing, high-kicking cast of over 50 and some of the greatest songs in musical history, ready to explode on to the West End's biggest stage. The show is the song and dance, American dream fable of Broadway and includes some of the greatest songs ever written, such as We're In The Money, Lullaby of Broadway, Shuffle Off To Buffalo, Dames and I Only Have Eyes For You.

42nd Street has played to great global acclaim for almost 40 years. Its phenomenal popularity serves as a legacy to Gower Champion, for whom 42nd Street stands as the outstanding, timeless tribute to the legendary director and choreographer of the original, Tony Award-winning production. The new West End production will be directed by the show's author Mark Bramble (whose other hit shows include Barnum, Treasure Island, The Three Musketeers, The Grand Tour), and director of many award-winning previous productions of this show around the world.

Mark Bramble said, "The original production had the look of a Warner Brothers black and white film. This time we're doing an MGM Technicolor version of 42nd Street with additional songs and dances. The theme of the show speaks louder today than ever before: follow your bliss and with talent and hard work dreams can come true. I'm delighted that Linnit/Grade are bringing our song and dance extravaganza to the magnificent Theatre Royal Drury Lane."

Previous productions of 42nd Street have won a series of major international awards, including: Original Broadway Production 1981: Tony Award Best Musical, Original Broadway Production 1981: Tony Award Best Choreography, Original London Production 1984: Laurence Olivier Award Best New Musical, Original London Production 1984: Evening Standard Award Best Musical, and Broadway Revival 2001: Tony Award Best Revival of a Musical.
