42nd Street

The Bucks County Playhouse , New Hope, PA
Thursday, July 26

One of show business’s most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer – straight off the bus from Allentown, PA – who arrives in New York armed with her tap shoes and big dreams. Peggy’s talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh, who gives her a spot in the chorus of his newest show – much to the leading lady’s chagrin. 42nd Street’s tap happy score features “We’re in the Money”, “Lullaby of Broadway”, “Shuffle off to Buffalo” and more. Before the show explore the shops of New Hope and enjoy lunch on your own in one of its numerous restaurants.

The Cher Show

LNeil Simon Theatre, New York, NY
Wednesday, March 13

Superstars come and go. Cher is forever.

For six straight decades, only one unstoppable force has flat-out dominated popular culture — breaking down barriers, pushing boundaries, and letting nothing and no one stand in her way.

The Cher Show is her story, and it’s packed with so much Cher that it takes three women to play her: The kid starting out, the glam pop star and the icon. The Cher Show is 35 smash hits, six decades of stardom, two rock-star husbands, a Grammy, an Oscar, an Emmy, and enough Bob Mackie gowns to cause a sequins shortage in New York City, all in one unabashedly fabulous new musical.
