Coventry theatre and showbiz fans are in for a musical feast in 42nd Street at The Albany Theatre in May. For four nights only the 1930’s art deco theatre will house X Factor winner Sam Bailey in the famous role of Dorothy Brock, recently played by Bonnie Langford and Lulu in the West End revival production, which closed in January.
42nd Street is the show which follows the lives of performers as they struggle to make their names on Broadway. The piece has a book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, music from Harry Warren and lyrics from Al Dubin, and is an adaptation of the 1932 novel and the 1933 film.
Having been hailed 'the most sophisticated and joyful of backstage musicals’, this heart-warming show provides exceptional tap routines and classic comedy. The late Mark Bramble, one of the show’s writers, said: "The theme of the show speaks louder today than ever before: follow your bliss and with talent and hard work dreams can come true."
42nd Street runs at The Albany Theatre, Coventry from Tuesday 14th to Friday 17th May, 7.30pm nightly. Tickets are priced between £15 and £20. Book online at www.albanytheatre.co.uk or by telephoning the box office on 02476 998 964.
