Field Parking opens at 8:00 PM | movie begins at dusk

Soldier's Field, Mount Gretna

Broadway’s biggest dance spectacular, 42nd Street, comes to the big screen under the stars of Mount Gretna. 42nd Street opened at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 2017, featuring a cast of more than 50—the largest in West End history. With a score that includes such tunes as "We’re in the Money," "Lullaby of Broadway" and "Shuffle Off to Buffalo," 42nd Street tells the story of famed theater director Julian Marsh as he tries to mount a musical extravaganza at the height of the Great Depression.

The filmed live performance of 42nd Street from London's West End captures the extravagant recent revival directed by the musical's late co-writer Mark Bramble. This toe-tapping spectacular will “sock you over the head with good old-fashioned spectacle.”
