On The Twentieth Century Reviews

Ridiculously sublime!
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
This is the show of our dreams!
Marilyn Stasio, Variety
Five Stars! Next stop, Broadway musical bliss!
Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News


Roundabout Theatre Company presents a hilarious new production of ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, the Tony-winning musical comedy from composer Cy Coleman (Sweet Charity), lyricist-librettists Betty Comden and Adolph Green (Singin’ in the Rain), Tony-winning choreographer Warren Carlyle (After Midnight, …Drood) and Tony-nominated director Scott Ellis (You Can’t Take It With You, …Drood).

Luck, love and mischief collide aboard the Twentieth Century, a luxury train, when the bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffe (Golden Globe® winner Peter Gallagher) embarks on a madcap mission to cajole glamorous Hollywood starlet Lily Garland (Tony® and Emmy® 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? This fun-filled musical journey to The Great White Way also stars Tony nominee Andy Karl (Rocky, …Drood), Drama Desk nominee Mark Linn-Baker (You Can’t Take It With You), Tony winner Michael McGrath (Nice Work If You Can Get It) and Tony winner Mary Louise Wilson (Grey Gardens).
