Broadway comes to the West End in 2017 with classic musical 42nd Street. Replacing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the multi-Tony-Award-winning musical opens at Theatre Royal Drury Lane in March with an all-singing, high-kicking cast of over 50. The musical tells the story of a chorus line who is thrust into a musical's lead when the usual star suffers and injury. Written by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, it has played to audiences for nearly 40 years. Grammy Award-winning singer Sheena Easton makes her West End debut in the iconic role of Dorothy Brock and Randy Skinner provides the choreography.

 

About Theatre Royal Drury Lane

London's oldest theatre is also its most spectacular, with a palatial auditorium that is among the most impressive in the world. The first theatre on this site was built in 1662 on the orders of Charles II. It has been rebuilt a number of times since then, but the current auditorium incorporates many elements from as long ago as 1820. More about Theatre Royal Drury Lane
