Description

A musical play set on a fabulous luxury train, the Twentieth Century Limited, travelling quickly from Chicago to New York. Impresario Oscar Jaffe, flamboyant and inspired but bankrupt, with four flops in a row, is desperate to revive his luck. As luck would have it, on the same train is his former protégé and lover, Lily Garland, now a major movie star, and her latest lover. Add a rival producer, Oscar’s henchmen, passengers, crew, and a wealthy religious nutcase, put them in the Observation Car and various on board drawing rooms, and it is a spectacularly funny and elegant Broadway hit. Not to mention Oscar’s preoccupation with Joan of Arc and Mary Magdalene All aboard for surprises and musical mischief at Theatre Sheridan.
