The Axelrod Performing Arts Center, one of NJ’s newest and fast-growing professional theaters—and the only professional theater in our region specializing in musical theater—announces our 2020 season, three new productions that can only be seen on the Axelrod’s stage in the Sheldon and Anne Vogel Auditorium. The musicals you see at the Axelrod are not bus-and-truck regional tours: these are original revivals created especially for the Axelrod by renowned Broadway and regional directors, choreographers and designers. Our 2020 season includes Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical (March), Grease (May-June) and 42nd Street (November).

Come meet those tap-dancing feet! Inspired by Busby Berkeley’s famous show-business movie musical, 42nd Street tells the story of aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer, from Allentown, PA, to land her first big job in the big city. When leading lady Dorothy Brock breaks her ankle and can’t go on, the director Julian Marsh asks Peggy to step in and tap her way into history. 42nd Street boasts one of the great theater scores of all time, including such standards as “You’re Getting To Be A Habit With Me,” “We’re In the Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Shuffle Off to Buffalo” and, of course, the title song “Forty-Second Street.” LEARN MORE

42nd Street is presented by special arrangement of Tams-Witmark, a Concord Theatricals Company.
