On the 20th Century

It’s nonstop laughs aboard the Twentieth Century, a luxury train traveling from Chicago to New York City. Luck, love and mischief collide when the bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee embarks on a madcap mission to cajole glamorous Hollywood starlet Lily Garland into playing the lead in his new, non-existent epic drama. But is the train ride long enough to reignite the spark between these former lovers, create a play from scratch and find the money to get it all the way to Broadway?

Cameron Carpenter featuring the International Touring Organ

Iconoclastic organist Cameron Carpenter is returning to Copley Symphony Hall! His repertoire – from the complete works of J. S. Bach to film scores, his original works and hundreds of transcriptions and arrangements – is probably the most diverse of any organist working today. A virtuoso composer-performer unique among keyboardists, Carpenter’s approach to the organ is smashing the stereotypes of organists and organ music while generating a level of acclaim, exposure and controversy unprecedented for an organist.
