★★★★★ 'Achingly beautiful revival of an American classic' The Telegraph
Director: Mark Bramble
Choreographer: Randy Skinner
The filmed live performance of 42nd Street from London's West End will be coming to the SJT this November. The filming captures the recent revival directed by the musical's late co-book writer Mark Bramble. The performance was edited in collaboration with Bramble before his death in February, making it one of his last projects.
42nd Street opened at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane 4 April 2017, featuring a cast of more than 50—the largest in the West End. Bramble directed the new revival, which featured choreography by Randy Skinner. With a score that includes such tunes as We’re in the Money, Lullaby of Broadway, and Shuffle Off to Buffalo. 42nd Street tells the story of famed theater director Julian Marsh as he tries to mount Pretty Lady, a musical extravaganza at the height of the Great Depression.
