Come and meet those dancing feet at ‘42nd Street’ … in Dallas or Fort Worth
Ever since the early talky film version, 42nd Street has been one of the iconic behind-the-scenes Broadway musicals. It was reinvented in the 1980s in the form it is today, and jam-packed with amazing dancing and classic songs. It’s currently playing in Dallas courtesy of Dallas Summer Musicals, but moves to Cowtown’s Bass Hall via Performing Arts Fort Worth… which gives you even more time to see it.
Fair Park Music Hall
901 First Ave.
Through July 10.
Bass Performance Hall
525 Commerce St.
