It may seem that the mechanics of talking on the telephone would be a foregone conclusion for actors in a musical comedy. That wasn’t necessarily so in the early production phases of 42ND STREET, where director Jim Coleman found it necessary to demonstrate the proper use of old-fashioned telephone “handset” receivers to cast members.
The old-time telephone instruments are used throughout the production, in which the retro look of the 1930s depression era sets the scene for the action.
In just three days of performances, 42ND STREET has become a local community theatre sensation, and the buzz on the streets says that most shows will play to full houses.
