Rendez-vous on '42nd Street' as the meta musical comes to Paris

The Theatre du Châtelet stands in for Broadway, as a new production of "42nd Street" delights French audiences. The show’s stars Monique Young and Alexander Hanson join us in the studio to talk about the struggles faced by their characters: beleaguered director Julian Marsh and fresh-faced ingénue Peggy Sawyer. We discuss the chance for escapism offered by musical theatre and the need to address social issues in the performing arts.
