Did anyone see this one night charity performance?

Loads of names as well as many of the Drury Lane cast.

I didnt even know about it - what a shame as I love 42nd Street - it was one of the first musicals I saw when I moved to London many years ago. I remember seeing it at Drury Lane

I saw it! It was absolutely fantastic!! A really really special evening with many talented performers taking part for a wonderful cause (The Caron Keating Foundation).
A few highlights were Summer Strallen in the 42nd Street Ballet, Janie Dee in the Shadow Waltz, John Partridge's performance of Lullaby of Broadway and Vicky Carr and Nigel Harman's performance of I Only Have Eyes for You.
The original 42nd Street cast made an appearance in Young & Healthy and showed that they definitely still have it!
Everyone was incredible! A truly wonderful evening.

I also was lucky enough to be able to see this show. It really was brilliant. Managed to get seats in the stalls so had a great view. The original 42nd street cast were fantastic, they definitely showed they can still move, I think they may have even got a bit of a standing ovation at the end of their routine. I really enjoyed Nigel Harman and Vicky Carr singing together, their performance of 'I Only Have Eyes For You' was one of my favourites, John Partridge singing Lullaby Broadway was also fantastic, he's got a really powerful voice. Loved the ending as the full company came on to do a reprise of Lullaby Broadway, I think the fact the show was a one off is what made it so special.
