THE timeless and inspiring musical classic - 42nd Street - comes to Glasgow’s King’s Theatre from Tuesday, June 26 to Saturday, June 30.

This is arguably still the greatest tap dancing musical of all time and we have a pair of tickets to give away to see the show on Wednesday, June 27.

Starring West End celebrities Dave Willetts and Marti Webb - 42nd Street was the winner of the 1980 Tony Award for Best Musical and the 2001 Tony Award for Best 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 will be taken to musical comedy heaven with breathtaking routines and glorious choreography.

Dave Willetts (Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, Cats, Ragtime, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers) and Marti Webb (Blood Brothers, Tell Me On a Sunday, Evita, Cats) will join forces to headline the legendary Broadway musical 42nd Street during a national tour of the UK which began on June 1, playing 23 venues by the end of the year.

From the producers of hugely successful touring hits including Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, 42nd Street is the timeless, inspiring tale of small town Peggy Sawyer’s rise from chorus line to Broadway star.

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.

Dave Willetts (Julian Marsh) has headlined countless musicals in the West End and on tour. He has played leads in shows such as Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables.

He headlined Seven Brides for Seven Brothers both on tour and in the West End as well the tour of South Pacific. He recently starred in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard in the West End.

Marti Webb (Dorothy Brock) is one of Britain’s most popular leading ladies, whose extensive West End credits include lead roles in shows such as Blood Brothers.
