She will star opposite Peter Gallagher as her former lover, the bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee.
The Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth is making a comeback to Broadway in February. According to an announcement made by Roundabout Theater Company on Tuesday, she is going to be the Hollywood diva Lily Garland in “On the Twentieth Century” which is a 1978 musical comedy about antics aboard a luxury train trip from Chicago to New York City.
We have known Kristin Chenoweth for her amazing performances including her role of Glinda in “Wicked” and when she appeared on Broadway in “Promises, Promises” in 2010. She is going to star against Peter Gallagher as her former lover, the bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee. Peter’s last appearance on Broadway was in “The Country Girl” in 2008 when he played Sky Masterson in the 1992 revival of “Guys and Dolls.” He is well known for his parts played in “Sex, Lies, and Videotape” and Fox’s “The O.C.”
The original Broadway production of “Twentieth Century” earned John Cullum a Tony as Oscar and the show also landed with couple of Tonys the best score and the best book. Now that it is c0mign back once again, we are hoping it would retain its previous glory. Scott Ellis is going to be the director while Warren Carlyle will be the choreographer.
