42nd Street

Calling all High School Musical addicts. You might like 42nd Street. The show about Depression-era Broadway is full of the kind of big, brassy tap dances and likable characters that made audiences fall in love with musicals in the first place. Loretta Swit, of "Hot Lips" Houlihan fame on television's M*A*S*H, plays a prima donna named Dorothy Brock who makes life hard on the new chorus girl named Peggy. Not to worry; before it's all sung and done, Peggy goes out on the stage "a youngster" and "comes back a star." 8:15 p.m. daily through July 14. Miller Outdoor Theatre, 100 Concert Drive. For information, call 713-558-8887 or visit www.tuts.com. Free.
July 9-14, 8:15 p.m., 2009
