Alec Baldwin and Anne Heche are set to star in a one-night only benefit performance of Twentieth Century at Broadway's Studio 54. The duo will reprise their roles from a 2004 Roundabout Theatre production of the classic Ben Hecht-Charles MacArthur comedy.
Premiered in 1932, Twentieth Century is a screwball comedy that’s lived on for nearly a century. According to Roundabout's website, Twentieth Century follows "Broadway director Oscar Jaffee (Baldwin) who boards the Twentieth Century Limited train and encounters his former discovery and ex-chorus girl Lily Garland (Heche), now a temperamental Hollywood star. He’ll do anything to get her back under contract and back in his bed, but she 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."
