It's time for my review of On the Twentieth Century.
Now at one point I was planning to skip this show, but thank-god I didn't because this was musical heaven. The songs were just amazing. I had heard the show was good, but I didn't know how good. The set was also really amazing. It was set onboard a train which they created faultlessly. The acting, singing and dancing were just fantastic. The ensemble included some very, very talented tap-dancers. This show was full of wonderful surprises keeping us on the edge of our seats. The cast were absolutely stunning. Some of the cast members that stood out for me were Kristin Chenoweth as Lily Garland/Mildred Plotka, who is multi-talented with a fantastic vocal range, Peter Gallagher as Oscar Jaffe, who touched our hearts with his acting and singing, Andy Karl as Bruce Granit, who was hilarious, Mark Linn-Baker and Michael McGrath as Oliver Webb and Owen O'Malley, who reminded me of Laurel and Hardy and made a great comedic duo, Mary Louise Wilson as Letitia Primrose, who is 83 years old and a truly inspirational role-model to all actors across the globe, Phillip Attmore, Rick Faugno, Drew King and Richard Riaz Yoder as porters, who were some of the best tap-dancers on Broadway. But not only is this an amazing musical, it's an amazing comedy too. This show will have you laughing hysterically. You really need to go and see this show to experience how amazing it is.
The featured star of On the Twentieth Century is, drum roll please… KRISTIN CHENOWETH!
Kristin is what glues the show together. She is a Broadway legend and it was great to see her perform in this.
Now for my final verdict on On the Twentieth Century. I give On the Twentieth Century…
I recommend this to any theatre-goer, young or old. For anyone looking for some fun musical numbers or some laughs this is the show to go to.
