ItemLive: ’42ND STREET’ A HAPPY FEAT AT MUSIC THEATRE

BEVERLY — The production of “42nd Street” at North Shore Music Theatre through Sunday is one of the finest two hours of entertainment I’ve seen at the venerable Beverly venue in many a moon.

The dancing is spectacular, the costumes are breathtaking and the performances are first-rate. Often when dancers are required to sing and singers are required to dance, the results are less than ideal. No such problem here.

This presentation of the classic Broadway musical, which, like “A Chorus Line” before it, is partly a glorious love letter to the “kids” who pursue their dream of performing and becoming a star. Staging this on North Shore’s theater-in-the-round must’ve created some unique challenges for the director, choreographer and dance captain. It all comes off without a hitch, remarkable considering at times some two dozen cast members are tap-dancing their hearts out on stage.

It’s hard to fathom that the cast performs this demanding show twice some days.

BEVERLY – In the opening moments of the musical “42nd Steet” at the North Shore Music Theatre, a curtain is slowly raised just enough so we can see many pairs of dancing feet, the rat-a-tat-tat of tap shoes ringing in our ears.

We hone in on those dancing feet and are frozen in a kind of theatrical trance. For the next two and a half hours, the dazzling dancing and fancy footwork rarely ever stops.

Be prepared to be swept off your feet.

North Shore Music Theatre’s joyous production of “42nd Street” follows its hit-filled overture with an explosive opening number set in a Broadway show audition in 1933. The star-is-born plot is optimistic and energetic, like the fabulous tap dancers that fill this exuberant cast. (Hey -- Bill Hanney did what? Look for this clever in-joke about the theater’s producer -- it’s projected as a newspaper headline on the opening curtain.)
