    Synopsis: 

    This sassy, brassy musical spectacular is the stage remake of the classic 1933 movie. The famous Leading Lady breaks her ankle just before the show’s big opening on Broadway. Can the Understudy save the show at the last minute and become a star? This Cinderella story of Broadway is an exhilarating extravaganza of show business at its greatest. Winner of the Tony Award in 1981 for Best Musical, 42nd Street’s songs include "We’re In The Money," "Shuffle Off To Buffalo," and "Lullaby of Broadway."

    You've Got to Come Back a . . . You Know

    Ben Brantley

    May 3, 2001: There's nothing like precision tap-dancing to turn a New York audience into a lab full of case studies for Dr. Pavlov. Throw us a big bunch of twinkly youngsters doing the same noisy step at the same moment, and we're beating our flippers together like the seals at feeding time. It's a conditioned reflex as old as the first chorus line.
