West end stars are joining forces to headline the legendary Broadway musical 42nd Street at the New Wimbledon Theatre from Tuesday 11 to Saturday 15 September.

West End actor Dave Willetts, playing Julian Marsh, has been in hits such as Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables.

He will be performing alongside Marti Webb, playing Dorothy Brock, who has starred in Blood Brothers and Cats.

42nd Street is a timeless, inspiring tale of small town Peggy Sawyer’s rise from chorus line to Broadway star and is said to be the greatest tap dancing musical of all time.

Winner of the 1980 Tony Award for Best Musical and the 2001 Tony Award for Best Revival, 42nd Street is a true classic.

The memorable score of hit songs includes ‘Lullaby of Broadway’, ‘We’re In The Money’, and one of the great showstoppers, ‘42nd Street’, danced down a flight of steps that light up as bright as the faces of the cast.

The tour is directed by the show’s author and Broadway director Mark Bramble, and features the stunning sets and costumes from the Broadway revival.

The musical was produced by Martin Dodd for UK Productions, with music and lyrics by Harry Warren and Al Dubin and book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble.

Tickets can be bought online or from the box office 08448 717646.
