42nd Street lights up Covent Garden

By Robin Johnson Published 15 November 2017

They’re the multi-talented stars of the West End’s biggest cast, but the brilliant performers of 42nd Street yesterday (Tuesday 14 November 2017) lent their toe-tapping light to the Covent Garden Market stage, as they took centre stage at the ceremony for the Christmas lights switch on.

And with performances from the likes of leads Tom Lister and Clare Halse, the spectacular show duly illuminated the whole of the West End piazza. You can see snaps of the show below.

The lights themselves were turned on by Covent Garden royalty in the form of singer Kylie Minogue and make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury.

42nd Street is the song and dance, American dream fable of Broadway, featuring the West End’s biggest cast on Theatreland’s oldest stage, Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

Featuring the iconic songs 42nd Street, We’re In The Money, Lullaby Of Broadway, Shuffle Off To Buffalo, Dames and I Only Have Eyes For You, this is a musical unlike any other.

42nd Street follows young Peggy Sawyer, 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 show is currently booking at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane until 20 October 2018.
