42nd Street was first brought to the live stage in 1980. However, it was originally a film released in 1933 by Warner Brothers Studios. The venture to convert the movie musical to a stage musical was considered to be a big risk at the time due to the fact that movie-to-stage conversions were rarely successful. However, 42nd Street on stage proved to be a major success winning numerous awards including Drama Desk Awards, Theatre World Awards, and of course the prestigious Tony Awards.
The book for 42nd Street was written by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble. Michael Stewart is a prolific book writer for Broadway musicals including Bye Bye Birdie, and Hello Dolly! Mark Bramble worked with Stewart on another project Barnum and also wrote the book for The Three Musketeers on his own. Originally, however, 42nd Street was a novel written by Bradford Ropes, while the film was written by Rian James and James Seymour.
42nd Street was originally produced on Broadway by David Merrick. This touring company production, however, is being produced by Troika Entertainment. Founded in 1989, this company is known for producing touring shows of popular and classic Broadway musicals and plays.
