A downtown Lexington street is undergoing a temporary name change.  Lexington Mayor Jim Gray unveiled the new name Monday.

A new theater production company is bringing the musical "42nd Street" to Lexington's Opera House.  So, in honor of the theatrical offering by the Lexington Theater Company, a block of Short Street has been renamed to read '42nd Street'. 

Lexington Mayor Jim Gray joined cast and crew for the unveiling outside the Opera House.  The sign will be in place for two weeks.  The show runs from July 23rd through the 26th.  The mayor presented a key to the city to Tony award winning actress Karen Ziemba , who plays Dorothy Brock in the show. ​
