It was an entertaining show with some very good talent.
Sets and production were up to the standards of other theaterworks productions. Liked it for its' lightness but lacked much depth as a show.

1930s! We came a little late and had a hard time getting into the production's comedy style. Everything was so exaggerated/dramatized to the nth degree. The acting was of that period ...I Love Lucy drama. The main characters' "oh my god" and...continued

A clever attempt to revive this 1930' comedy achieved some success... The two lead actors were very appealing, the costumes and set a delight.

Description

By Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur (Based on a play by Charles Bruce Millholland)

Adapted by Ken Ludwig

Directed by Robert Kelley

Broadway ballyhoo meets Hollywood hustle aboard the Twentieth Century Limited, the legendary locomotive that plays streamlined host to this classic screwball comedy from the 1930s. Polished to a deco sparkle by Tony Award-winning farceur Ken Ludwig, it matches an on-the-outs impresario with a mercurial silver screen starlet in a madcap battle of the sexes, hurtling from havoc to hilarity on the disorient express.
