'On the Twentieth Century' review: Kristin Chenoweth the engine of a blissful Broadway revival   (JOE DZIEMIANOWICZ, 3/15/15, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS)

Next stop, Broadway musical bliss.

That's where the Roundabout revival of "On the Twentieth Century," directed with verve by Scott Ellis, takes you.

The setting for this fast-paced, flab-free screwball operetta by Cy Coleman, Betty Comden and Adolph Green is a luxury coach en route from Chicago to New York in the 1930s. The stylish state-of-the-art locomotive by David Rockwell gleams in brilliant Art Deco glory.

But that's nothing compared to the practically nuclear glow that comes off Kristin Chenoweth, whose singular talent and skills are tailor-made for a role originated on Broadway in 1978 by Madeline Kahn.

...and Kristin Chenoweth.
