Come and meet those dancing feet! A new production of 42nd Street will tour the United Kingdom next year. 42nd Street opens at Leicester Curve and then runs at Sadler’s Wells from 7 June to 2 Jul. 2023.

42nd Street follows Peggy Sawyer, a young ingenue who dreams of her name in lights in New York City. When she lands a spot in the chorus line of Pretty Lady, she’s suddenly thrust into the lead role and must impress the right people to become a star.

42nd Street features songs including “Lullaby of Broadway,” “We’re in the Money,” and “Shuffle Off to Buffalo.” 42nd Street was last at Theatre Royal Drury Lane from 2017 to 2019 and was nominated for three Olivier Awards.

Jonathan Church directs 42nd Street, and the production features choreography and design by Bill Deamer and Rob Jones. 42nd Street casting will be announced at a later date.

42nd Street features a book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, music by Harry Warren, lyrics by Al Dubin.

42nd Street is at Sadler’s Wells.
