Set in 1933, “42nd Street” is the story of a young aspiring actress, Peggy Sawyer, from Pennsylvania, who goes to Manhattan following her dream. She’s just another chorus girl in the glamorous Broadway show “Pretty Lady” directed by a big-time director, Julian Marsh, and starring the famous Dorothy Brock. However, when Dorothy breaks her ankle, Peggy gets her chance to shine and fulfill her dream.

“42nd Street” is an American musical with a book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, lyrics by Al Dubin and Johnny Mercer and music by Harry Warren. The 1981 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, “42nd Street” is based on the novel by Bradford Ropes and its subsequent 1933 Hollywood film adaptation.
