About the Show
A small-town girl's Broadway dreams come true in this dazzlingly musical revival.
When the leading lady of a Broadway musical suffers an injury, unknown talent, Peggy Sawyer (Clare Halse) becomes the unexpected star of the show. This classic American musical has stunning choreography by Olivier Award nominee, Randy Skinner and brilliant costume design by Olivier Award nominee, Roger Kirk.
...the razzmatazz of the staging is so preposterous that it makes you smile, especially when it is delivered by a chorus drilled with pure precision in choreography remounted by Randy Skinner from Gower Champion's original.
When that army of dancers gets going, when the rows of lights start twinkling and tap shoes hit the bleachers extending towards the audience from the back of the stage, it’s simply, overwhelmingly, stunning.
But most of all, this show socks you over the head with good old-fashioned spectacle. In an era where most homegrown musicals rely on a couple of all-purpose sets and some moody lighting, it’s dazzlingly lavish and bright.
