Lensic Presents Online
NT Live Online: 42nd Street
The Lensic is proud to present a series of National Theatre Live events online this spring and summer!
One of Broadway’s most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street comes to the big screen from London’s Theatre Royal in a stunning musical production. Set in 1933, 42nd Street tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway.
Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania and her talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh. She gets a spot in the chorus of the musical-within-the-musical, Pretty Lady. Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl. When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found—someone like Peggy Sawyer!)
Filmed in 2018 at London’s Theatre Royal the production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble. This visualy stunning extravaganza is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards (“Lullaby of Broadway,” “We’re in the Money,” “42nd Street”), and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.
