On the Twentieth Century (Photos)
All aboard! Hop on the Twentieth Century, a luxury coach traveling from Chicago to New York, as business and love collide in a hilarious musical comedy! Bankrupt theatre producer Oscar Jaffe tries to convince Hollywood star Lily Garland to star in his new epic drama! However, not only does Jaffe not have the money to produce the drama but it doesn’t actually exist yet! Is the train ride long enough to find the money he needs, write a play from scratch and convince Garland to star in his drama? Led by Tony Award nominee Peter Gallagher as Oscar Jaffe and Tony & Emmy Award winner Kristin Chenoweth as Lily Garland, Roundabout Theatre Company proudly brings to life this musical revival! Today, Luner on Theatre brings you an exciting first look at Roundabout Theatre Company’s On the Twentieth Century!
