Overview

'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, it was only with the opening of this new production that it has come to be celebrated as a classic. The New York Post raved, 'They don't write musical comedies like this anymore!,' while The New York Times cheered, '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 Cy Coleman's operetta-style melodies and Comden and Green's giddy gift for showbiz satire.' Along with standout supporting performances by 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 ('flawless and delightfully entertaining' [USA Today]) and Chenoweth, who 'creates one of the most virtuosic portraits in song ever on Broadway' (The New York Times). On the Twentieth Century brims with 'the kind of performance that will make those lucky enough to have seen it grin with remembered delight decades after the fact' (The Wall Street Journal), and PS Classics' deluxe two-disc set is a first-class ticket that everyone can enjoy.
