Confined to a town the size of San Luis Obispo, with its quaint storefronts and homey vibe, some residents occasionally yearn for something more. Luckily, the usually inaccessible glitz and glamour of Hollywood and Broadway is coming to the Christopher Cohan Performing Arts Center (PAC) Monday night.

The revival of the long-running Broadway musical, “42nd Street” will electrify the PAC on Nov. 30. The show, directed by Mark Bramble, promises to be a visual and audible delight with flashy costumes and show-stopping tap dance numbers.

“42nd Street” follows the story of an aspiring Broadway dancer as she gets her first big break in the business, but the production will not take itself too seriously. Cal Poly Arts Director Steve Lerian predicted the experience will be “one of those high-energy, crowd-pleasing fun evenings in the theater.”

Before the show, audience members can expect a lecture by actor Erik Stein, casting director and general veteran of show business at the Pacific Conservatory Theatre (PCPA).

Tickets are available online at pacslo.org. Stein’s lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m., and the show is set to start at 7:30 p.m.
