Kristin Chenoweth (original Glinda – Broadway, Pre-Broadway) will star as Lily Garland in new Broadway production of the classic musical ON THE TWENIETH CENTURY.
Produced by Roundabout Theatre Company, ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY will play a 20-week limited engagement at Broadway’s American Airlines Theatre. Previews will begin February 12, 2015, towards a March 12, 2015 opening.
Here’s how Roundabout bills the musical: “It’s nonstop laughs aboard the Twentieth Century, a luxury coach travelling from Chicago to New York City. Luck, love and mischief collide when the bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffe (Peter Gallagher) embarks on a madcap mission to cajole glamorous Hollywood starlet Lily Garland (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?”
Tickets are currently available to Roundabout subscribers and donors only. Tickets will be on sale to the public this summer.
