Roundabout Theatre Company will welcome back Alec Baldwin and Anne Heche—stars of the 2004 Broadway revival of Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur’s comedy Twentieth Century—for a one-night-only benefit reading of a new adaptation by Ken Ludwig.
The show's director Walter Bobbie will also return for the special reunion performance, set to take place on April 29 at 7:30 PM at Studio 54. Tickets go on sale today at 10 AM.
In Twentieth Century, a struggling Broadway producer (Baldwin) tries to get a former lover, now a Hollywood star (Heche), to sign a contract to star in his latest (and as yet un-conceived) play as they travel on the luxury train Twentieth Century Limited from Chicago to New York. He has 20 hours to persuade Lily to return to Broadway. Otherwise, it's the end of the line.
Baldwin is a Tony nominee (A Streetcar Named Desire), an Oscar nominee, and has won three Emmy awards and three Golden Globes.
Heche is a Tony nominee for her performance in Twentieth Century and an Emmy nominee for Gracie's Choice. She can currently be seen as Dep. Superintendent Katherine Brennan on NBC’s Chicago P.D.
Additional cast members and a full creative team will be announced at a later date.
