The wow factor with tap shoes on

Spine tingling singing from Tom Lister; astoundingly energetic and talented chorus; in fact the entire performance was magic. If you get the chance to go grab it!

My friend took me to London for my 80th and to see 42nd street.

What a night, I could go again and again.

May years ago I saw 42nd Street in Australia.

While my sister and I visited London last month i knew it was a must to take her to see this production.

Omg!! This production was spectacular from start to finish we both loved loved loved it, the energy from everyone was fantastic tap dancing was out of this world.

Thank you for a super spectacular show and made this memory of London a great one.

Would love to see this production again can you please let me know if you will be bringing this show to Australia soon i look forward hearing you will be touring Sydney Australia.

Kind Regards

Cast off your concerns, bins those blues and sit back for trip back in time when shows were focused on dazzling entertainment. Coming straight at you.

There’s little doubt that Sheena Easton has retained her vocal talents honed through the tough world of pop. Whilst the lightning feet and sheer charm of Clare Halse bring Peggy Sawyer’s naive charms to life of stage.

Perhaps the biggest cheer goes out to the chorus line. As you watch with joy the spectacle, skill and talent of a young cast. It’s hard not to think about the hours of frustration, sweat and sheer stubborn tenacity it must take to get it so right. Well your efforts weren’t wasted. My thanks for a wonderful night of uplifting unadulterated song and dance.

The best show ever! I saw this yesterday, having seen it also at The Theatre Royal nearly 30 years ago. The singing is great, the dancing is fantastic, with zillions of tappers, and the sets are wonderful.

Clare Halse (Peggy Sawyer), is one heck of a tap dancer and singer, and gave a great performance.

There wasn't one weak link, and Sheena Easton belted out "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" to perfection. Although also written by Al Dubin, it hasn't featured in previous productions, and its haunting melody was very moving.

Don't blink during "We're in the Money", or the finale of "42nd Street", cos you won't to miss a nanosecond! This is a feel good, and then feel even better sort of show. My mouth was aching with smiling! Brilliant.
