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 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.
Audiences are taken to musical comedy heaven with breathtaking routines and glorious choreography.
42nd Street is considered the greatest tap dancing musical of all time.
