Winner of the Tony Award® for Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a fun-filled romp that completely rewrites the rules of love.
It’s 1922, and small-town girl Millie Dillmount has just arrived in New York City, ready to make her dreams come true. Her plan is simple: find a job as a secretary for an eligible bachelor … and then marry him. But it doesn’t take long for Millie’s “thoroughly modern” plan to go awry. Her best friend is kidnapped, her wealthy boss appears uninterested in her flirtations, and the man she actually loves doesn’t have a dime to his name … or so he tells her.
Don’t miss this romantic musical comedy that pays homage to the Roaring Twenties with its catchy tunes, frisky flappers, and explosive dance numbers.
