Kristin Chenoweth and Peter Gallagher to Star in Roundabout’s ‘On Twentieth Century’

Kristin-Chenoweth
Kristin Chenoweth
, I mean Tony & Emmy Award winner Kristin Chenoweth, will star in Roundabout Theatre Company’s On The Twentieth Century. 

The musical, directed by Scott Ellis, will also star Peter Gallagher.

Here’s the story: 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?

The show 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).

The full cast will be announced shortly.
