The show is scheduled to open 20 March ahead of the Press Night on 4 April. Easton, who starred as 'Aldonza/Dulcinea' opposite the late Raul Julia in "Man of LaMancha" and has recently been performing around the world in symphony concerts entitled "The Spy who Loved Me", will be joined on stage by Tom Lister. Lister who played 'Carl King' in "Emmerdale for eight years and recently played 'Wild Bill Hickok' in the UK Tour of "Calamity Jane" will play 'Julian Marsh.' 42nd Street is presented in London by Michael Linnit and Michael Grade together with The Global Group of Companies for Gate Ventures with Executive Producer Johnny Hon.

The show will feature an "all-singing, high-kicking"  cast of over 50, bringing Broadway's biggest show to the West End's biggest stage. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased safely and securely using our online ticket booking system.

Sarah's love of theater was sparked by an enthusiastic drama teacher who wouldn't take no for an answer. These days she's much more comfortable in the audience than on the stage. She's an English teacher and enjoys reading and writing when she's not teaching or at the theater.
