THE STORY OF "42ND STREET"
“42nd Street” tells the story of a humble, naïve young actress named Peggy Sawyer who has come to audition for a new Broadway musical. Unfortunately, due to her nervousness, Peggy arrives to the audition late and misses her chance to join the chorus. Luckily, Peggy soon catches the eye of the famous director, Julian Marsh, and he gives Peggy her big break. However, the show's aging leading lady, Dorothy Brock, quickly grows to dislike Peggy. On opening night, Ms. Brock falls and breaks her ankle. Panic spreads through the company as the show seems doomed to close. Can Julian and Peggy save the show from closing and the company from the unemployment line?
The show has won multiple Tony Awards since its premiere on Broadway in 1980. It is known for such numbers as “We’re in the Money” and, of course, “Forty-Second Street.”
