Do you know where the song "Shuffle off to Buffalo" came from? Well, it came from an excellent Broadway Play and Movie "42nd Street". It is one of Hollywood's best musicals then and now. Why not see the original movie with such stars as Dick Powell, Rudy Keeler, and Ginger Rogers. You will be amazed at the dance numbers. This show has got it all. If you like a great musical, this is for you. Thanks for reading the above.

5 stars. A joy from start to finish. Sure the story is old hat, but beautifully executed. The musical numbers are still GREAT.
