42nd Street - Teeth, Tits & Tap!


42nd Street is the song and dance, American dream fable of Broadway. Broadway’s biggest show, which is known world wide is being staged in The Grand Opera House, Belfast by local company St Agnes' Choral Society, last night was the opening which was a complete success, already I have read rave reviews and the show closed with a well deserved standing ovations.

St Agnes' no strangers to the GOH are currently celebrating as this production marks their 60th year producing shows that have wowed local audiences and welcomed members from their conception back in 1957.

So on to the show, first things first I must applaud the unseen stars, the production team, under the Direction of Laura Kerr, Choreography by Ann Marie Morgan and Musical Direction by Wilson Shields, job well done in my eyes the show was a smash.

The all singing, high-kicking cast features Michelle Hannaway as Dorothy Brock, alongside John Lindop as Julian Marsh, Lorraine Jackson Brown as Peggy Sawyer and Gareth McGreevy as Billy Lawlor.

The Cast/Chorus when on stage at once as 70 strong were completely breathtaking in terms of dance ability, can honestly say have never seen such an talented ensemble.

Budget seemed to be no object as both the costumes and stage props were impeccable, some cast had in access of 10 changes which is a challenge in itself and in terms of the use of stage I particularly loved the clever use of a mechanically mirror that gave the audience the ability to appreciate all dance formations and the tiered stairway that appeared from nowhere for the final number.

What is 42nd Street about?

Featuring a score by Harry Warren and Lyrics by Al Dubin, the musical is based on the novel by Bradford Ropes and the subsequent 1933 Hollywood film adaptation. A classic backstage musical, the show follows famed director Julian Marsh as he attempts to put on a brand new musical production during the height of the Great Depression.

Young Peggy Sawyer is fresh off the bus from small-town America and just another face in the chorus line on Broadway’s newest show. But when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy might just have the shot at stardom she's always dreamed of…

The irresistible show features the iconic songs, We're in the Money, Forty-Second Street, Lullaby of Broadway, Shuffle Off To Buffalo and many more

The production runs in The Grand Opera House until Saturday 14th April, don't miss the opportunity to see this stage spectacular.
