Twentieth Century - 2004 - Broadway

Based on an earlier, unproduced play by Charles B. Milholland - inspired by his experience working for David Belasco.

Set in the observation car of the Twentieth Century Limited, enroute to Grand Central Station in New York City from Chicago. Aboard the luxury train are egomaniacal theatre producer Oscar Jaffe, desperately in need of a hit, and his former paramour and protégé, temperamental actress Lily Garland (born Mildred Plotka), who abandoned him for a Hollywood career. Oscar is determined to sign her for his new show, and Lily is just as determined to ignore his advances, both professional and personal.
