The West End revival of 42nd Street starring Bonnie Langford is to be streamed in cinemas across the UK and Ireland.

Michael Linnit and Michael Grade’s production of the musical ran at Theatre Royal Drury Lane from March 2017 to January 2019.

Now More2Screen has announced that the production will be streamed in more than 550 cinemas across the UK and Ireland from November 10.

It was filmed live for cinema in November 2018 by BroadwayHD.

42nd Street has music and lyrics by Harry Warren and Al Dubin and is directed by Mark Bramble. Ross MacGibbon directed the filmed version in collaboration with Bramble.

Langford said: “I’m so proud that this great production is now going to be screened in cinemas, reaching more people across the UK and Ireland than ever before.

“42nd Street has been a part of my life since my twenties when I first played Peggy Sawyer and then a whole 25 years later I returned as Dorothy Brock to Theatre Royal Drury Lane. It feels like the perfect conclusion to a joyous run.”

The cast also includes Tom Lister, Philip Bertioli, Clare Halse, Jasna Ivir, Christopher Howell and Matthew Goodgame.
