The musical is inspired by a novel written by Bradford Ropes and a film of the same name released in 1933. The film was a huge hit and got brilliant review from everyone. The success of the movie paved they way for its theatrical adaptation by the same name. 42nd Street debuted on stage for the first time at Broadway in 1980 and was produced by David Merrick. The cost of the project was estimated to be around three million dollars.

Before opening at Broadway, 42nd Street went through vigorous try-out sessions and six previews in Washington at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts to make sure everything was spot on and there were no flaws that might hurt the play.

Fans and critics went crazy over it and the play ran for an unbelievable three thousand four hundred and eighty six consecutive shows. It remains to this day one of the longest running plays in Broadway history, not only that it also won a Tony Award for TheBest Musical among many other awards and nominations.
The Broadway success of the 42nd Street paved the way for its debut at the West End on 8th August, 1984. That show launched the career of a certain Catherine Zeta-Jones. The West End show was just as successful as the Broadway production and went on to win the Olivier Award for The Best Musical. 42nd Street made its comeback with a new look and a new cast at Broadway on 2nd May, 2001. The revival was an immense hit that went for one thousand five hundred and twenty four performances and won the Tony award for Best Revival. It went on a tour of the UK in 2007 which was followed up by a tour of Asia to huge acclaim.The story of 42nd Street revolves around Peggy Sawyer, a young aspiring actress who comes to New York to audition for a Broadway musical Pretty Lady.
