All aboard The Twentieth Century!
We’re just over two weeks away from opening night of On the Twentieth Century so here’s a first look some of the characters!
Hot on the heels of the astonishing Broadway revival, On the Twentieth Century is a sparkling, fast-paced and witty screwball comedy with book and lyrics by the team behind Singing in the Rain and music by Cy Coleman (Sweet Charity, Little Me, City of Angels).
Set in the 1920s, it focuses on egomaniacal theatre producer Oscar Jaffee and his volatile personal and professional relationship with the arrogant film actress Lily Garland. After four flops in a row, Jaffee is facing ruin. He books a suite on the luxury train the Twentieth Century Limited, heading from Chicago to New York City. Also on board are Garland and her new beau, narcissistic heartthrob Bruce Granit. Jaffee hopes he can lure Garland back to the stage and salvage his sinking career. She is just as determined to escape his charm and a hysterical battle of wits begins.
The show opens on Tuesday 25th October and runs every evening until Saturday 29th with an additional matinee on the Saturday. Friday 28th October is Gala Night and all audience members will get a free programme plus a glass of bubby in the interval.
