When: June 24-30, 8:15 p.m. 2016
Dreams are made and hearts are broken when Peggy Sawyer leaves Allentown, Pennsylvania, for the bright lights of Broadway in the musical 42nd Street. Certain she has what it takes to be a chorus girl, she attempts to audition for the new show Pretty Baby, but gets shot down. The other hoofers feel sorry for Peggy and arrange for a second audition, which she aces. But when the star breaks an ankle, can Peggy overcome her doubts and nab a leading part in the show? 42nd Street is a tribute to the pageantry of show biz. It's packed with great songs such as "Shuffle Off to Buffalo," the title track "Forty-Second Street" and the iconic "Lullaby of Broadway." The show is performed at 8:15 p.m. Friday through Thursday (June 24 to 30) at the Muny in Forest Park (314-361-1900 or www.muny.org). Tickets are $14 to $90.
