Because I am the luckiest girl in the world, I got to see the fabulous and incredible Kristin Chenoweth in On the Twentieth Century on Wednesday night. She was absolutely incredible. I have never been so delighted to see a person take a Broadway stage. In her first big song and dance number she looked me directly in the eye. I was on the third row. This is a revival and it's a cute story, although not as great a story in my opinion as say Thoroughly Modern Millie. Unfortunately, Peter Gallagher couldn't find it in himself to show up to work, but his understudy did a good job. Andy Karl was also super funny.
I loved the set because it actually looks like they're on a train and they do some really interesting things with it. But . . . Kristin Chenoweth is really the big reason to see this show. Every second she is on stage it feels like and honor to be in the audience. She is so funny and her voice is a dream. Also she is even tinier than you would think.
