Original Broadway Version
THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE is a high-spirited musical
romp that has all of New York dancing the Charleston. It’s the zany new
1920’s musical that has taken Broadway by storm, winning the TONY Award for BEST MUSICAL!
Taking place in New York City in 1922, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
tells the story of young Millie Dillmount, who has just moved to the
city in search of a new life for herself. It’s a New York full of
intrigue and jazz - a time when women were entering the workforce and
the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever. Based on
the popular movie, the stage version of THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE includes a full score of new songs and bright dance numbers.
Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment. And with the
role of Millie Dillmount, musical theatre has found a new heroine for
the ages in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE!
