42nd Street Streaming on YouTube this weekend

42nd Street will be streamed for free on YouTube this weekend  from Friday 4th December at 7.30pm GMT. It will be available for 48 hours.

The show opened in March 2017 at Theatre Royal Drury Lane and ran until January 2019.  42nd Street focuses on the efforts of famous director Julian Marsh to mount a successful stage production of a musical extravaganza during the Great Depression. It is the timeless and inspiring tale of small town girl Peggy Sawyer's rise from the chorus line to Broadway star.

42nd Street is full of classic hit songs including "Lullaby of Broadway", "We're in the Money", "Shuffle Off To Buffalo", "Keep Young and Beautiful" and "I Only Have Eyes For You" as well as the title number.

The cast includes Bonnie Langford playing Dorothy Brock, the tough Broadway star who fractures her ankle on the eve of the opening night. Clare Halse (Marjorie May in Gypsy) plays ingĂ©nue Peggy Sawyer — who is plucked from the chorus line to take over from the injured Dorothy and Tom Lister (Carl King in Emmerdale, Calamity Jane and The Water Babies) is Julian Marsh the demanding director racing against time to put on the fictional show titled Pretty Lady with  Philip Bertioli as Billy Lawlor.

The 60-strong cast features Jasna Ivir (Maggie Jones), Christopher Howell (Bert Barry), Matthew Goodgame (Pat Denning), Graeme Henderson (Andy Lee), Bruce Montague (Abner Dillon), Mark McKerracher (Mac/ Doc / Thug), Emma Caffrey (Annie), Ella Martine (Lorraine), Clare Rickard (Phyllis) and Paul Knight (Oscar).
