Show Description:
In this classic screwball comedy, it’s nonstop laughs aboard the Twentieth Century Limited, a famous luxury train traveling from Chicago, Illinois to New York City. Love and mischief collide when down on this luck and bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee, the flamboyant sinking impresario with four flops in a row, embarks on a madcap mission to cajole the glamorous Lily Garland, a Hollywood star and former Jaffee protégé, 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? All the while there is a rival producer to outwit, a wealthy religious nut, Oscar’s henchmen and various passengers and crew members to add zest to the merry, madcap journey. Part operetta, part farce and part screwball comedy, the musical is great fun for all. Nominated for 5 Tony Awards in 2015 for its Broadway revival and winner of 5 Tony’s during its original run!
