Studio 58 presents 42nd Street from February 2 - 26, 2017 sponsored by the Studio 58 Legacy Fund.

The quintessential backstage musical comedy classic, 42nd Street is the song and dance fable of Broadway with an American Dream story and includes some of the greatest songs ever written, such as “We’re in the Money”, “Lullaby of Broadway”, "Shuffle Off to Buffalo”, “Dames”, “I Only Have Eyes For You” and of course, “42nd Street”. Based on a novel by Bradford Ropes and Busby Berkeley’s 1933 movie, 42nd Street tells the story of a starry-eyed young dancer named Peggy Sawyer who leaves her Allentown home and comes to New York to audition for the new Broadway musical Pretty Lady. When the leading lady breaks her ankle, Peggy takes over and becomes a star.
