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.

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.
