STAGE TUBE: Broadway Flashback- ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Roundabout Theatre Company will present Tony & Emmy Award winner Kristin Chenoweth as "Lily Garland" and Golden Globe & SAG Award winner & Tony nominee Peter Gallagheras "Oscar Jaffe" in a new Broadway production of the classic musical On the Twentieth Century, directed by Scott Ellis and choreographed by Warren Carlyle. On the Twentieth Century features music by Cy Coleman and book & lyrics by Betty Comden & Adolph Green.
It's been over 36 years since the show debuted on Broadway, and below, we bring you a video flashback of the original cast in action, including: John Cullum, Imogene Coca, Kevin Kline, and Madeline Kahn- who was replaced by Judy Kaye soon after the show opened.
ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY will play a 20-week limited engagement through July 5, 2015, beginning previews on February 12, 2015 and opening officially on March 12, 2015 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).
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 (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?
