42nd StreetGrammy Award winner Sheena Easton plays legendary diva Dorothy Brock in the hit Broadway musical 42nd Street at London's Theatre Royal Drury Lane. The multi Tony-Award-winning musical, with an all-singing, high-kicking cast of over 50, tells the story of a chorus line girl who is thrust into a musical's lead when the usual star suffers an injury. Sheena Easton makes her West End debut, starring alongside Tom Lister as the big shot director Julian Marsh and Clare Halse as overnight sensation Peggy Sawyer, with choreography by Randy Skinner. Written by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, 42nd Street has played to audiences for nearly 40 years.

 

About Theatre Royal Drury Lane

London's oldest theatre is also its most spectacular, with a palatial auditorium that is among the most impressive in the world. The first theatre on this site was built in 1662 on the orders of Charles II. It has been rebuilt a number of times since then, but the current auditorium incorporates many elements from as long ago as 1820. More about Theatre Royal Drury Lane
