Kristin Chenoweth-Led On the Twentieth Century Revival Delays First Preview

A lost tech rehearsal as a result of the recent blizzard is the cause for the delay.

The new Broadway revival of the musical On the Twentieth Century at the American Airlines Theatre will begin performances later than expected. The revival will now begin previews on Friday, February 13. The first performance was originally scheduled for Thursday, February 12. The delay, according to the press representatives for Roundabout Theatre Company, is due to lost tech-rehearsal time as a result of the Tuesday, January 27 blizzard in New York City. Ticket holders can exchange their tickets at the point of purchase for a future performance.

The production stars Tony and Emmy Award winner Kristin Chenoweth, Peter Gallagher, Andy Karl, Mark Linn-Baker, Tony winner Michael McGrath, and Tony winner Mary Louise Wilson. The cast also includes Phillip Attmore, Justin Bowen, Preston Truman Boyd, Paula Leggett Chase, Ben Crawford, Rick Faugno, Jenifer Foote, Bahiyah Hibah, Drew King, Analisa Leaming, Kevin Ligon, Erica Mansfield, James Moye, Linda Mugleston, Mamie Parris, Andy Taylor, Jim Walton, and Richard Riaz Yoder.

The musical, which won 1978 Tony Awards for its book and score, follows bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffe (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. Featured on the creative team are Warren Carlyle (choreography), David Rockwell (scenic design), William Ivey Long (costume design), and Donald Holder (lighting design).
