REVIEW: 42nd Street

This semesters musical is 42nd Street. The musical has been going on for about a week now, and plenty of people have gone to see the show. 42nd Street is essentially a play within a play. You get to see Peggy Sawyers journey to becoming the lead of the show. This show is definitely worth watching. It was obvious that the cast and tech crew took so much time putting this musical together.

One thing that really stood out was that majority of the props that were in the musical were handmade. The gypsy tea kettle was constructed and painted by the tech team.

Another cool thing I noticed about the props was the cakes that are brought out, are real. This was a nice addition to the show because the scent of desserts fill the theater.

There was an abundance of musical numbers and dances. Each of the dances were well thought out and you could see that the cast put in a lot of work into them. In one of the numbers ,“Money,” there were actors dancing on little platforms that were painted to look as if they were dimes.

The music during the show was NOT a recording. In fact it was played by Lincolns band. Which is impressive. The music that was played by Lincolns band was catchy and you will more than likely find yourself humming to some of the songs that were played during the show.
