Translated to stage, the vintage glamour of the early 20th century makes for some of the liveliest and most nostalgic modern theater out there. Enter 42nd Street, a musical comedy classic since its Broadway premiere back in 1980 (although the show is based on a 1933 film) that beckons audiences to “come and meet those dancing feet.” The musical brings a quintessential story of the American Dream, as young dancer Peggy tests her luck at stardom by auditioning for the newest stage show out there. Her path to the stage is bumpy and fraught with setbacks, but of course there’s a happy ending before the curtain closes.
