“42ND STREET has restored the thrill of spectacle, provoking a thrill of joy and a heartfelt burst of applause. It’s the kind of bright and sparkling show you dreamed of seeing as a kid. 42ND STREET is not original, or profound, or earth-shattering. It’s just a damn good time, a celebration of what the script calls “the two most glorious words in the English language: musical comedy.”
