42nd Street, Gateway Playhouse

"From the first notes of the overture — which begins with the tune of “We’re in the Money”— shoulders shrugged and heads bobbed throughout the audience. Jonathan Parks, the musical director, leads a fine orchestra."

-Aileen Jacobson, The New York Times

"The wonderful, energetic music coursed throughout the theater, until you felt...surrounded by the notes from all angles.  All pieces, from the ever popular “Lullaby of Broadway,” and namesake “42nd Street,” to the fillers between the scenes, were masterfully played."

-Kristin Weyer, NY Theatre Guide

"...led fantastically by Jonathan Parks."

-Melissa Giordano,
