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 Jaffee (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?

The creative team includes David Rockwell (Sets), William Ivey Long (Costumes), Donald Holder (Lights), Jon Weston (Sound), Kevin Stites (Musical Director), Larry Hochman (Orchestrations) and David Krane (Dance Arrangements & Incidental Music).

ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY premiered on Broadway in 1978, and won Tony Awards for Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical.
