The quintessential tap dance extravaganza, 42nd STREET, is essentially Broadway’s 'reality show' filled with backstage drama centered around the American dream of becoming a star. Musically, it includes some of the most notable standards ever written such as “We’re In The Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “I Only Have Eyes For You” and of course “42nd Street,” all played by a top-notch Big Band Orchestra.

42nd STREET tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a starry-eyed young dancer who leaves her quiet Allentown home for New York City to audition for the new Broadway musical, Pretty Lady. When the legendary leading lady breaks her ankle, underdog Peggy takes over and, against all odds, becomes a star. With a book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Al Dubin, this sparkling new production utilizes direction by Mark Bramble and choreography by Randy Skinner, the team who staged the 2001 Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival.
