Broadway in Chicago Presents 42nd Street at Cadillac Palace Theatre (March 9, 2016)

42nd Street is the behind the scenes story of Peggy Sawyer who comes to New York to audition for Pretty Lady in the 1930’s. The show is full of glamorous costumes from the era that fill the stage with color and sparkle. The live musicians in the pit are a fun character in the show and the topic of a few of the best jokes. The dancing is spectacular, especially when the entire company tap dances at the same time on the stage wide staircase. The song “Dames” in the middle of the show sums up one the appeals: “What do you go for, go see a show for? Tell the truth, you go to see those beautiful dames.” See the grand spectacle of 42nd St at the beautiful Cadillac Palace Theatre through March 20th.
