Based on the 1967 film of the same name, "Thoroughly Modern Millie" is the story of small-town girl, Millie Dillmount, who comes to New York City to marry for money instead of love – a thoroughly modern aim in 1922, when women were just entering the workforce. Millie soon begins to take delight in the flapper lifestyle, but it doesn’t take long, however, for Millie’s “thoroughly modern” plan to go awry. Winner of the 2002 Tony Award for Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a bright, funny, and charming musical comedy — a heartfelt valentine to New York City and the people who love her.
