42nd Street is a celebration of Broadway itself. Based on the novel by Bradford Ropes and the subsequent 1933 film adaptation, it focuses on the efforts of famed dictatorial Great White Way director Julian Marsh to mount a successful stage production of a musical extravaganza at the height of the Great Depression. It won the 1980 Tony for Best Musical and the 2001 Tony for Best Revival.
