Opening Musical Theatre West’s 60th Season, 42nd Street takes stage at the Carpenter Center.  Based on the 1933 Warner Brother’s film, it tells the story of a talented yet naive hoofer, Peggy, trying to make it in the chorus of Julian Marsh’s broadway-hit-hopeful, Pretty Lady.

The MTW production is fortunate to have the original direction and choreography of Gower Champion, under the tutalage of director/choreographer Jon Engstrom, the dance captain for original broadway production.  LA Times writes “From the opening curtain rising on a line of time-stepping feet, through the rainbow-hued ‘Dames’ and gilt-edged ‘We’re in the Money,’ to the title tap ballet, everyone onstage seems so ecstatic that we’d gladly break their ankles to trade places.”  Hurry get your tickets before this non-stop tapping show sells out!
