VIDEO: Kristin Chenoweth Talks Broadway's ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY on 'Today'

Kristin Chenoweth stopped by this morning's TODAY to talk about starring in the Broadway revival of On the Twentieth Century in which she portrays glamorous Hollywood starlet Lily Garland.

"I hadn't yet read those, I want to just keep my focus," says the actress of the glowing reviews of the musical. Watch the appearance below!

Roundabout Theatre Company presents the classic musical On the Twentieth Century, which will play a 20-week limited engagement through July 5, 2015, at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street). Starring Tony & Emmy Award winner Chenoweth, Golden Globe & SAG Award winner & Tony nominee Gallagher, Tony nominee Andy Karl, Mark Linn-Baker, Tony winner Michael McGrath and Tony winner Mary Louise Wilson, On the Twentieth Century will be choreographed by Tony winnerWarren Carlyle and directed by six-time Tony nomineeScott Ellis, and features music by Cy Colemanand book & lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. On the Twentieth Century is based on plays byBen Hecht, Charles MacArthur & Bruce Millholland.

ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY premiered on Broadway in 1978, and won five TONY AWARDS including Best Original Score and Best Book of a 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 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?
