Witness all the conundrum going on in the world of theatre with tickets for 42nd Street from StubHub. This all-time favourite classic fuses jukebox elements, original scores and an upbeat plot together to give you one night of highest entertainment.
The harsh realities of Broadway await
The show must go on—on and off stage for this musical, as it circles around notorious Broadway director Julian Marsh and his latest show "Pretty Lady". New York newbie Peggy Sawyer has just dismounted a bus from Allentown, Pennsylvania, to make it big on Broadway, and has to face the harsh realities of the show business. Going through turmoil, love conundrums and competing with faded Broadway stars, Peggy makes her way through the tough life of a rising Broadway star. The show was originally based on the eponymous novel by Bradford Ropes but was made ready for the stage by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble. Ever since it premiered in 1980, it’s been an integral part of the big stage—and why wouldn’t it be with the fitting plot. After it opened, it played over 3,400 performances, making it one of the longest-running shows on the big stage. Only four years later, it conquered the world of the West End in London and took large strides to becoming an international success. With a partly original score interspersed with well-known songs that have featured in other films and productions, the music honours Broadway and is filled with grand musical tunes that fit in well with the predominant way of musical making of the time. Relive the era of grand musicals once more with tickets for 42nd Street, which you can easily buy or sell on StubHub. Get whisked into the ludicrous and seductive world of theatre and enjoy an array of well-loved songs that will stay with you forever.
From Broadway to the big award stages
Spreading its wings all over the world, the musical still celebrated its biggest success on Broadway itself. The original Broadway show and the Broadway revival from the early 2000s earned the musical a range of Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Revival of a Musical and Best Choreography. The London production, meanwhile, hauled a Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical. This award-winning show has aged well and is as beloved today as when it opened.
