It is my great pleasure to announce that we will be producing the musical On the Twentieth Century, with book and lyrics by Betty Comden & Adolph Green, score by Cy Coleman, and directed by Scott Ellis. Kristin Chenoweth and Peter Gallagher will star in this production, opening in the spring of 2015 at the American Airlines Theatre.
Both Peter and Kristin have seen great success in theatre, film, and television. It is wonderful to welcome back Kristin, who was last seen at Roundabout in The Apple Tree and has created iconic characters on stage in You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown (which she won a Tony for) and Wicked as well as many memorable roles on television shows like “Pushing Daisies” and “Glee.” Peter has had a remarkable stage career spanning more than 40 years, and he was last on Broadway in The Country Girl. Peter has also shown incredible range in both film and television, including American Beauty, While You Were Sleeping, and “The O.C.”
The design and production team also features long-time Roundabout family: Warren Carlyle (Choreography), David Rockwell (Sets), William Ivey Long (Costumes), and Donald Holder (Lights).
I am thrilled to bring this true American classic back to Broadway. And with Scott Ellis at the helm, I know the production will be remarkable.
