The cast of the musical 42nd Street finally returns to Paris, on the stage of the Théâtre du Châtelet, in the heart of Paris.

Directed and choreographed by Stephen Mear, a veteran of successful musicals (London, New York, Paris), to music by Harry Warren, 42nd Street is a show of excess throughout its sixteen scenes in the purest tradition of Broadway shows.

The perfectly choreographed numbers, the lively music and songs, the costumes and glitter… all the ingredients are there to make you spend an excellent family evening for the end of the year.

42nd Street, a timeless story and musical

Based on the 1933 film of the same name and the novel by Bradford Ropes, the show tells the story of Julian Marsh, a Broadway producer, who a few years after the financial crisis of 1929 tries to mount a musical to return to the forefront of the stage.

At the same time, we follow the adventures of Peggy Sawyer, a young singer who has come from her native province to pursue a career in New York. Hired as a substitute dancer for the revue, she unintentionally injures the star of the show, Dorothy Brook, who is forced to abandon the stage forever. Peggy is then chosen to replace her… Will she be up to the task?

It's up to you to find out on the magnificent stage of the Châtelet!

There's always something going on in the Paris Region. Find all the events here.
