42nd Street @ Sadler's Wells Theatre...

Last night Stuart and I went to see the brand-spanking new production of ‘the original showbiz musical,' 42nd Street at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London's glitzy Angel.
With a star cast including Ruthie Henshall, Adam Garcia and Les Dennis, 42nd Street is a larger-than-life, massively entertaining celebration of musicals and the irrepressible spirit of Broadway that’s guaranteed to lift anyone's spirits. 
A showbiz fairy tale with breath-taking tap dance routines, backstage intrigue, classic romance and a delightful comedy... Who cares about the plot? 
OK, it's about a chorus girl who gets a lucky break (sic). It was pure pleasure; downright irresistible; we smiled ear to ear.
(It was the first West End show Stuart ever saw when it had Catherine Zeta-Jones in it. He still treasures the programme.)
