Watch behind-the-scenes footage from 42nd Street rehearsals

Boasting the biggest ever West End cast, 42nd Street opens in the West End in March 2017.

The 50 strong 42nd Street cast includes Grammy Award winner Sheena Easton, Tom Lister as Julian Marsh, Clare Halse as Peggy Sawyer, Jasna Ivir as Maggie Jones, Norman Bowman as Pat Denning, Stuart Neal as Billy Lawlor, Graeme Henderson as Andy Lee, Christopher Howell as Bert Barry, Bruce Montague as Abner Dillon, Mark McKerracher as Mac/Doc/Thug and Emma Caffrey as Annie.

With some huge musical numbers, even the rehearsals are a sight to behold. The full cast takes to the stage at times for some mesmerising routines, alongside favourites We’re In The Money, Lullaby of Broadway and many more.

The story follows director Julian Marsh and his journey in opening a production during the Great Depression, giving Peggy Sawyer her big break.
