Cast Audition

The cinema release of the critically acclaimed West End revival of Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble’s 42nd Street will be screened in more than 550 cinemas across the UK and Ireland from November 10. Starring Bonnie Langford as Dorothy Brock, with music and lyrics by Harry Warren and Al Dubin, 42nd Street tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer who gets her big break on Broadway.

This is the largest ever staging of the musical, featuring much-loved songs “42nd Street”, “We’re In The Money” “and “Lullaby Of Broadway”. The stage production was produced by Michael Linnit and Michael Grade; it was filmed live for the cinema screen at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in November 2018 by BroadwayHD, the US-based streaming service for live theatre. Ross MacGibbon directed the cinema version in collaboration with the late Mark Bramble, filming in 4K with eight cameras at three separate performances to capture the spectacular scale of the stage show. Cinema tickets are on sale now at 42ndStreetCinema.com.
