Julian Marsh (42nd Street) Julian Marsh is the leading character in what was a novel by Bradford Popes, “42nd Street”, but which is far better known in its adaptation as a Hollywood film in 1933 and a Broadway musical in 1980. Julian is a tough-as-nails Broadway musical director who is ill and broke as a result of the stock market crash of 1929. He’s trying to put on one last extravaganza in order to be able to retire. Naturally there are all kinds of backstage dramas, illicit romances, last minute substitutions leading to instant stardom, etc. An ingénue saves the day and Julian has his success, but it is a bittersweet one. Oh, well, with a show full of tunes such as “Lullaby of Broadway”, “You’re Getting to Be a Habit with Me”, “We’re In the Money” and “42nd Street” itself, we’d say that Julian is one lucky guy, even if he is unlucky in love.
