Notes and Editorial Reviews

The show of our dreams - a merry, madcap, slaphappy musical comedy" is how Variety hailed On the Twentieth Century in its "sizzling and sumptuous" (Associated Press) 2015 Broadway production, led by Tony- and Emmy Award-winner Kristin Chenoweth and Golden Globe-winner and Tony Award nominee Peter Gallagher. While the show garnered five Tony Awards during its original 1978 run, including Best Score and Best Book for composer Cy Coleman and librettists Betty Comden and Adolph Green, it was only with the opening of this new production, directed by six-time Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis and choreographed by Tony Award winner Warren Carlyle, that the show has come to be celebrated as a classic. The New York Times raved, Read more "This production not only retains but also amps up what was good about the original... shining a spotlight on the shrewd silliness and alchemical fizz of Coleman's operetta-style melodies and Comden and Green's giddy gift for showbiz satire." Along with standout supporting performances by Tony Award nominee Andy Karl, Mark Linn-Baker and Tony Award winners Michael McGrath and Mary Louise Wilson, this production gives audiences the opportunity to bask in the star turns of Gallagher and Chenoweth, who, in what many cheered as the performance of her career to date, "creates one of the most virtuosic portraits in song ever on Broadway" (The New York Times).
