"A rhythmic, romantic tour through time and the American songbook"
– LA SPLASH

September 19 – November 2, 2008 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 1 hour and 40 minutes

A world premiere

Nine-time Tony Award-winner and National Medal of the Arts recipient Tommy Tune directed the world premiere of the musical Turn of the Century, a romantic comedy and trip through time and the American songbook from the writers of the Tony Award-winning Jersey Boys—Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. Dixie Wilson's a singer who can't catch a break-with a gig or a guy. Billy Clark's a piano player who knows the songs and loves the ladies. The friction between them is immediate; so is the chemistry. At the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve 1999, the impossible happens—and together, Billy and Dixie steal the songs that make the whole world sing, becoming the superstars they've always dreamed of being, at the Turn of the Century.
