Kristin Chenoweth, Peter Gallagher, and the stars of Broadway's On the Twentieth Century, a Roundabout Theatre Company production at the American Airlines Theatre, met the press on January 29. Scott Ellis directs the Betty Comden, Adolph Green, and Cy Coleman musical, which begins performances February 12 and opens March 12.

The musical, which won 1978 Tony Awards for its book and score, follows bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee (Gallagher), as he embarks on a madcap mission to cajole the glamorous Hollywood starlet Lily Garland (Chenoweth) into playing the lead in his new, nonexistent epic drama.

Andy Karl takes on the role of Bruce Granit, with Tony winner Michale McGrath as Owen O'Malley.
