I loved the recent outrageously lavish West End production of 42nd Street at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, but was annoyed I didn’t get a chance to return to see the recast before it finished earlier this year – which saw Bonnie Langford return the adaptation of this Hollywood Golden Age musical 25 years after she first starred as the show’s young ingenue.
Thankfully More2Screen and BroadwayHD provided me with another opportunity to see this ultimate showbiz musical with their filming of the stage show, which returns the story to its glorious cinematic roots.
Scroll down for my on-the-day reaction. Be sure to check out More2Screen listings for screenings of this spectacular, 60-strong productions on Tuesday 12 November 2019 and other selected encore dates.
