Lyric Premiere & New-to-Chicago Production
By Harry Warren and Al Dubin
Nobody does Broadway-style productions quite like Lyric, and Chicago audiences will love the Tony-winning song-and-dance spectacular 42ND Street when it comes to Lyric next spring! The story of Peggy Sawyer, an aspiring actress from Allentown who gets her big break and rises from chorus girl to star status overnight, 42ND Street is filled with unforgettable tunes. You’ll love the sensational tap numbers and memorable melodies like “Lullaby of Broadway,” “We’re in the Money,” “You’re Getting to Be a Habit with Me,” “Sunny Side to Every Situation,” “Young and Healthy,” and the famed title song, in a high-energy, new-to-Chicago production that is as beautiful to see as it is to hear. With the full power of members of the Lyric Orchestra and Chorus, don’t miss the spectacle of this Broadway blockbuster—only at Lyric!
