‘Turn of the Century’ by Brickman and Elice Begins September 19!

September 14th, 2008 reports that the latest work from Jersey Boys writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, Turn of the Century, begins at the Goodman Theatre September 19 and will run through November 2.

Turn of the Century, a star-studded romantic tour through time and the American songbook, is directed by the nine-time Tony Award-winning director/ choreographer Tommy Tune and is orchestrated by Jersey Boys’ Steve Orich.

Goodman Theatre Artistic Director Robert Falls states, “Marshall and Rick have written a fresh, wildly imaginative new musical that will delight, surprise and astonish. We are thrilled to be its first home.”

Director Tommy Tune adds, “What excites me most about Turn of the Century is that it is an original musical; it’s not based on a person’s life, a movie, or a television show-it’s an original idea. Rick, Marshall and I have been working on the show for three years. It’s been a wonderful process.”

According to Rick Elice, “Turn of the Century will deliver beloved music in a way that electrifies the audience in the way it did the very first time one heard Summertime or Alexander’s Rag Time Band.”

Tickets to Turn of the Century are $25 to $82 and may be purchased online at, at the Goodman Theatre Box Office, 170 North Dearborn Street, or charged by phoning 312-443-3800.

  2. Beverley, do good things come to those who wait?

    “Elice and Marshall Brickman also wrote Turn of the Century, directed by Tommy Tune (coming to Broadway next year),…”
