Since it opened on Broadway in 1980, the musical "42nd Street" has won a number of awards. A Tony for Best Musical, an Olivier in 1984 in London for Best Musical, and a second Tony in 2001 for Best Revival.
And all that was before the show — book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, lyrics by Al Dubin and Johnny Mercer, and music by Harry Warren — was revived in 2017 in London's West End. That show won four Whatsonstage awards: Best Musical Revival, Best Chroegraphy, Best Set and Best Costume Design.
It's that show, now closed, that is the focus of the movie event that will screen at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1, at two Inland Northwest locations: Regal Cinemas theaters at Northtown Mall and Coeur d'Alene's Riverstone Stadium.
The Telegraph described the show as "an American classic right royally revived." And as a United Kingdom publication, the paper knows all about things royal-plated.
