From Main Street to 42nd Street is a musical that chronicles one young woman's journey from California to New York City in pursuit of her dream. Carnahan, who appeared in the Paper Mill Playhouse production of The Baker's Wife and the Broadway-aimed new musical, Pride and Prejudice, authored the one-woman show with musical director and Broadway composer, Barbara Anselmi (It Shoulda Been You, Speargrove Presents, and The Orphan Train).
"Jacque Carnahan, an up-and-coming singer/dancer/actress... is a wide-eyed, sweet voiced yet sassy ingénue whose drive and ambition have taken her from a small town in California to -- as the title of her show says -- 42nd Street. Her program was a tour of her life in song, complete with all the ups (first jobs) and downs (losing jobs) showing her comic side...her tap dancing talent...her youthful philosophy and charm. Joined (at the end of her show) by guest artist Laura Osnes (Grease, South Pacific, Anything Goes), they sang songs from Grease including a rousing sing-along of 'We Go Together.'"
