42nd Street - National Tour

Go Into Your Dance! National Tour of 42nd Street Shuffles Into Portland

Gone are your blues and gone are your tears; we've got good news to shout in your ears! The new national tour of 42nd Street begins performances in Portland on October 27. The Tony Award-winning musical plays the Keller Auditorium through November 1.

Directed by co-author Mark Bramble and choreographed by Tony nominee Randy Skinner, 42nd Street tells the story of a starry-eyed young dancer named Peggy Sawyer who leaves her Allentown home and comes to New York to audition for the new Broadway musical Pretty Lady. When the leading lady breaks her ankle, Peggy takes over and becomes a star.

42nd Street includes a book by Michael Stewart and Bramble, lyrics by Al Dubin and music by Harry Warren. The musical includes some of the greatest songs ever written, such as “We’re In The Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Shuffle Off To Buffalo,” “Dames,” “I Only Have Eyes For You” and of course “42nd Street.”

The show stars Matthew J. Taylor as notorious director Julian Marsh, Kaitlin Lawrence as Broadway leading lady Dorothy Brock and Caitlin Ehlinger as newcomer Peggy Sawyer.
