Thoroghly Modern Millie
Book by Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan
Music and Lyrics by Jeanine Tesori and Dick Scanlan
Directed by Wheelice Wilson, Jr.
Adapted from the movie starring Mary Tyler Moore and Julie Andrews, this extravaganza tells the story of a small town girl who has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself. It’s 1922, and New York is full of intrigue and jazz – a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men, and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, it’s a perfectly constructed musical of madcap merriment. You’ll be doing the Charleston as you leave the theatre.
