Sept 16 - Nov 6, 202242nd Street—the big, bright tap dancing extravaganza—is coming to Goodspeed in a fresh, newly imagined production. This love letter to Broadway is the ultimate show biz fairy tale of the chorus kid who becomes an overnight star. A 1930s backstage musical packed with plenty of pizazz, it will set your heart pounding with its rhythmically tapping feet and a hit parade of songs, including "Lullaby of Broadway," "We’re In The Money," "Shuffle Off To Buffalo," and of course, "42nd Street." It’s tap dance heaven!
