Based on the 1967 Oscar-winning film of the same name, Thoroughly Modern Millie
takes audiences back to the height of the Jazz Age, when "moderns" - including a flapper named Millie Dillmount - were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce, and rewriting the rules of love. This singing, dancing, romancing musical takes place in Manhattan, 1922, with all the Jazz Age razzamatazz you want in a big, bright, brand-new Broadway blockbuster. It's the story of a Midwestern girl who arrives in New York, determined to take the town by storm. USA Today says Millie
is "a thoroughly delightful experience." And as Time Out New York says, "you can't see this kind of whirling, transporting pop entertainment anywhere else!"
