by BEN HECHT & CHARLES MacARTHUR
Based on a play by CHARLES BRUCE MILHOLLAND
Adapted by KEN LUDWIG
Directed by BARBARA L. RHOADES
Ken Ludwig adapted this hilarious classic comedy by Ben Hecht and Charles McArthur, starring Alec Baldwin and Anne Heche. The play is about Oscar Jaffe, the egomaniacal Broadway director, and Lily Garland, the chorus girl he transformed into a leading lady. Bankrupt, with his career on a downslide, Oscar boards the Twentieth Century Limited and encounters Lily, now a temperamental Hollywood star. He'll do anything to get her back under contract and back in his bed, but his former protégé will have nothing to do with him. All of the action takes place on board the legendary Twentieth Century train from Chicago to New York City where Oscar has 20 hours to persuade Lily to return to Broadway in his upcoming show. If he fails, it's the end of the line.
