Come to '42nd Street' Where you're Night Will Be Dazzled! Featured

If you love classic dance musicals from the 30s, then you will love Marriott's new production of 42nd Street! The cast was wonderful. Now, I personally, have never been a fan of this show until now. After seeing this show, I loved it! The show is directed by Jeff Award winner Rachel Rockwell, with beautiful costumes by Nancy Missimi, unbelievable choreography by Tammy Mader, and Doug Peck's fantastic musical direction.

 

The show, about a tap-heavy cast getting ready to open their show, “Pretty Lady,” directed by the moody but brilliant director Julian Marsh (played fiercely by Tom Galantich), who starts to see new beginnings for his show when Peggy Sawyer (Kaitlyn Davidson, who amazed us with her dancing and beautiful matching voice), the small town girl from Allentown, Pa., steps into the lead role, when diva Dorothy Brock (the funny Catherine Lord) falls and breaks her ankle. The investor along with their star diva leaves, now it's up to Peggy to live up to the star in her performance.

The show breathes with magic in the feet of its actors. The tap dance segments were so wonderful to watch. For one thing, the choreography is truly the highlight of this show. I highly recommend this show to anyone that wants to have a fun time at the theatre. This show is for you.

 

For being a theater-in-the-round, the Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire puts on astounding productions every season. For choosing 42nd Street, I think they made the right choice. Everything was perfectly put in place. The comedy, the fun, the dancing, the lights, and the smiles onstage. For those of you who have never seen the show or heard it, then you maybe may have heard some the songs that are in the show, including “We're in the Money,” “42nd Street,” and the classic “Lullabye of Broadway.”

 

Overall, it was a great entertaining evening of theater. Definitely go see this show. Who knows? You might be humming the music as you walk out the door. Marriot is a great theater to see shows, so if you get the chance try to see one there if you have or haven't. You won't be disappointed.

 

42nd Street is playing through May 29 at the Marriott Lincolnshire Theatre; 10 Marriott Drive, Lincolnshire. The running time is 2 hours, 20 minutes. Tickets cost $41-49 at 847-634-0200 or visit them online at www.marriotttheatre.com.
