Originally a hit movie musical that saved Warner Brothers from bankruptcy during the Depression, 42nd Street now rescues audiences from a world drained of pep and pizzaz. From the moment it was first adapted for stage (in 1980, promptly winning the Tony for Best Musical), 42nd Street has gotten toes tapping, hearts fluttering and eyes misting faster than just about any other show on the boards. It's a quintessential backstage musical comedy, American Dream story and song-and-dance fable all rolled into one Broadway classic. Set during the early '30s, 42nd Street is filled with famous musical numbers, including "We're in the Money," "I Only Have Eyes For You" and the title song. Now Hanover Theatre presents a brilliant new live production of this ultimate example of old-fashioned showmanship.
