Aug 6-10: 42ND STREET at MTWichita

Julian Marsh (Damon Kirsche) tells Peggy Sawyer (Tessa Grady)
 about the lullaby of old Broadway.
I'm honored and thrilled to return to Music Theatre Wichita to present 42ND STREET, the musical valentine to the Great White Way that celebrates the timeless songs of Harry Warren and Al Dubin. Directed and choreographed by Jon Engstrom of the original Broadway company in an entirely new production designed by Bruce Brockman and costumed by Debbie Roberts, this 42ND STREET is a stellar presentation of Gower Champion and David Merrick's original 1980 production.
"Come and meet those dancing feet!”  Broadway’s liveliest tap-dance extravaganza triumphantly returns to Music Theatre Wichita, bringing all its lively humor, gorgeous costumes, and exhilarating dance numbers. 42nd Street is the ultimate in spectacular feel-good entertainment, featuring an unprecedented array of magnificent songs:  “The Lullaby of Broadway,” “Young and Healthy,” “You’re Getting to be a Habit with Me,” “We’re in the Money,” “Shuffle Off to Buffalo,” ”Go Into Your Dance,” “About a Quarter to Nine,” and the hypnotic title tune.
Watch "The Brett and Sierra Show" (KWCH12) — Damon Kirsche joins Brett and Sierra to discuss MTWichita's production of 42ND STREET.
