42nd Street's Kate Levering, the youngster who becomes a star, clowns around at the May 7 recording session for the new Broadway revival. 42nd Street will be released on the Q Record label. 42nd Street is a musical about making musicals back in the days of the Depression. Young hoofer Peggy Sawyer (Kate Levering) lands a job in the chorus of a new Broadway show, ruled over by star Dorothy Brock (Christine Ebersole) and mercurial director Julian Marsh (Michael Cumpsty), but when an unlucky accident happens, Peggy gets her chance to go out there a youngster, but come back a star. 42nd Street, now playing at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts, first took its Broadway bows in 1980, winning the 1981 Tony Award for Best Musical and running 3,486 performances. The revival has been nominated for nine 2001 Tony Awards.
