Duchess of Cambridge, Morgan Freeman and cast of 42nd Street celebrate opening

The musical opened at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane last night

42nd Street opened in the West End last night at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane 33 years after the show first opened in the same theatre.

Stars such as Morgan Freeman, Sara Cox, Chris Moyles and Sarah Hadland attended the opening, alongside The Duchess of Cambridge. The show raised money for a children's hospice The Nook.

The show, which received a four star review from WhatsOnStage's Sarah Crompton, follows the trials of life backstage in New York City.

Written by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, with lyrics from Al Dubin and music by Harry Warren, the show features songs including "Lullaby of Broadway" "We're in the Money" and "Shuffle Off to Buffalo".
