AMERICAN musical classic ’42nd Street’ will be screened to the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis later this month.
This cinematic screening is the largest ever staging of the Tony Award-winning show and was filmed live at The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, in the heart of London’s West-End.
Boasting more sequins and glitter than ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, this musical theatre powerhouse tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer blinded by the glimmering stars in her eyes in her desperation to land her big break on Broadway.
Running to New York City from a small American town, Peggy is just another anonymous face amongst the chorus line on Broadway. However, when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy becomes tantalizingly close to seeing her name in lights.
This revival performance is directed by the musical’s author, Mark Bramble, who passed away earlier this year, and features stage veterans such as Bonnie Langford as Dorothy Brock, Tom Lister as Julian Marsh, Clare Halse as Peggy Sawyer, and Philip Bertioli as Billy Lawlor. All supported by a show-stopping, dazzling, tap-dancing ensemble.
The screening will be held on Friday, November 29 with the bar opening at 6pm for a 7pm start.
Tickets cost £11 in advance, £13.50 on the door or £5 for under 18s. To book, call 01297 442138 or visit www.marinetheatre.com
