42nd Street (1997)

Directed and Music Directed by Jeff Williams
Choreographed by Susie Michaud

Based on the 1933 Busby Berkeley movie musical, 42nd STREET tells the story of a starry-eyed young actress named Peggy Sawyer who comes to audition for the new Julian Marsh-directed musical about to open on Broadway. While she can’t seem to stay in the good graces of the show’s aging leading lady Dorothy Brock, Peggy soon catches the eye of the famous director. On opening night, Ms. Brock breaks her ankle and panic spreads through the company as the show is doomed for closure-until it is suggested that Peggy take the role. In only 36 hours, Peggy becomes a star! With a book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Al Dubin, the memorable score includes We’re in the Money You’re Getting to be a Habit With Me, Lullaby of Broadway, and of course, 42nd Street.

Starring: David Ludt, Mike Dickson, Darlene Dickson, Ed Donlan, Julie Capone, Nicole Couture, Nicholas Howe, Laurie Marcinkewicz, Sandie Couture, Michelle Caissey, Tom DiRusso and a large ensemble of singers and dancers
