2009 Empire Show Announced

Published:

2009 Empire Show Announced… It is with great pleasure that we bring 42nd STREET to the Liverpool Empire, 13th – 16th May next year.

42nd Street is a gloriously extravagant and colourful show featuring spectacular dance routines and well-loved songs such as Lullaby of Broadway, We’re in the Money, Dames, There’s a Sunny Side to Ev’ry Situation and, of course, the unforgettable title song.

The story of Peggy Sawyer’s rapid and momentous rise from “young wannabe chorus girl” to “star” is set in 1933, as America is beginning to leave the worst of the Depression behind.

Despite having missed the tap audition for “Pretty Lady”, Peggy is subsequently hired by theatre producer Julian Marsh as a dancer for the show. Unfortunately, in her youthful enthusiasm, Peggy accidently causes Dorothy Brock, the show’s leading lady, to break her ankle, and the entire cast faces the breadline when “Pretty Lady” is cancelled. In true Broadway fashion, “the kids” of the chorus won’t give up, and all ends in triumph when they persuade first Marsh then Peggy herself, that she has the talent to step into Dorothy’s shoes and make “Pretty Lady” a success.

We hope to have you leaving the Empire happily tapping your troubles away along Lime Street…
