Photo Coverage: Opening Night at Twentieth Century

pixeltracker
Alec Baldwin and Anne Heche star in Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Twentieth Century, by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur in a new adaptation by Ken Ludwig. Walter Bobbie directs.

The stars came out to celebrate the show's opening night, and the show's second announced extension - all before opening!

Twentieth Century is the comedic story of Oscar Jaffe, a successful and egomaniacal Broadway director, who has transformed a chorus girl, Lily Garland, into a leading lady. As Lily rises to stardom and heads to Hollywood, Oscar begins a career downslide.

Bankrupt and on his way out, Oscar boards a train, the Twentieth Century Limited, where he coincidentally runs into Lily again. Oscar pulls out all the stops to persuade the now temperamental star to return for another show.
