One of Broadway's most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street, comes to the big screen in the largest ever production of the show.

The musical tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway. Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania and her talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh. She gets a spot in the chorus of Pretty Lady. Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl. When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found -- someone like Peggy Sawyer!

Filmed at London's Theatre Royal the production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble.
