When 42nd STREET was released in 1933, it set the standard, not only for cinematic musical productions, but also for the cherished concept of a backstage musical, a show within the show.

It's got all of the ingredients for a classic crowd pleaser, including a director (Warner Baxter) who just needs one more hit in order to retire, a leading lady (Bebe Daniels) caught between keeping the investor (Guy Kibbee) happy and pursuing a secret romance with a fallen star (George Brent), a naive chorus girl (Ruby Keeler) learning the ropes from two show biz veterans (Una Merkel and Ginger Rogers) and, most important, a lavish series of show stopping numbers choreographed by Busby Berkeley.

Almost 80 years since its release, 42nd STREET hasn't lost one speck of its sparkle, and even in black and white, the film shines with the same dynamically colorful grandeur that earned it a Best Picture nomination.

We invite you to come and meet those dancing feet at Broadway Brunch, where you can sip on mimosas, enjoy our special brunch menu and hear the beat of dancing feet on 42nd STREET. (Sarah Pitre)
