First look photos are in for the UK revival of 42nd Street starring Ruthie Henshall, Adam Garcia and Les Dennis.
The much-loved musical is a timeless and inspiring showbiz fairy tale that combines breath-taking tap dance routines, backstage intrigue, classic romance and delightful comedy to dazzling effect.
