It’s 1927 and the 42nd Street Orphanage in New York is a bleak place. The McGrew Sisters, who head the orphanage, are mean and stingy to the children in their charge. Enter a new orphan, young Ginny Hobbs, with a trunk full of “magic,” costumes and props from the vaudevillian circuit her late parents used to work. As the kids perform a few skits, two con artists form a plan. They’ll get the kids to do an original show called “Broadway Lullaby,” get it fully insured, and when it flops, collect all the money. But the kids have other plans!
