On the Twentieth Century

It’s nonstop laughs aboard the Twentieth Century, a luxury train travelling from Chicago to New York City. Luck, love and mischief collide when the bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee (Golden Globe® winner Peter Gallagher) embarks on a madcap mission to cajole glamorous Hollywood starlet Lily Garland (Tony Award® winner Kristin Chenoweth) into playing the lead in his new, non-existent epic drama. But is the train ride long enough to reignite the spark between these former lovers, create a play from scratch, and find the money to get it all the way to Broadway?
 
On the Twentieth Century is the hilarious Tony-winning musical comedy from the creators of Sweet Charity (composer Cy Coleman), Singin’ in the Rain (lyricist-librettists Betty Comden and Adolph Green), After Midnight (Tony-winning choreographer Warren Carlyle) and The Mystery of Edwin Drood (Tony-nominated director Scott Ellis), back in the spotlight nearly 40 years after making its Broadway debut.
 
Grab your ticket and hop onboard this fun-filled musical journey to The Great White Way!
