Roundabout Theatre Company has announced that PS Classics will record a cast album of the Broadway revival of On the Twentieth Century, starring Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth. The cast will record the album today, March 23. The release date is set for May 19.

The musical's cast also features Tony nominee Andy Karl (Rocky), Tony winner Mary Louise Wilson (Grey Gardens), Tony winner Michael McGrath (Nice Work If You Can Get It), and Mark Linn-Baker (You Can't Take It With You). Scott Ellis (The Elephant Man) directs.

With music by Cy Coleman and book and lyrics by Adolph Green and Betty Comden, On the Twentieth Century is a madcap musical comedy set almost entirely on a train, the luxurious Twentieth Century, from Chicago to New York. Chenoweth stars as movie star Lily Garland who finds herself face-to-face with Oscar Jaffee, a down (but not out) Broadway producer played by Tony nominee Peter Gallagher.

The production's limited run at American Airlines Theatre opened March 15 and is scheduled to run through July 5.
