With show-stopping tap numbers and hits such as “We’re In The Money” and “Lullaby of Broadway,” there’s no question that “42nd Street” will dazzle you this winter at Drury Lane Theatre.

“42nd Street” is based on the 1933 film of the same name. It opened on Broadway in 1980 and ran for nine years! With lyrics by legends Johnny Mercer and Al Dubin, and music by Harry Warren, the show has played in a continuous loop around the world.
