The winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002 season's most awarded new show on Broadway! Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film, Thoroughly Modern Millie takes you back to the height of the 1920s Jazz Age in New York City, when "moderns," including a flapper named Millie Dillmount, were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce, and rewriting the rules of love. Millie has carefully calculated romantic plans to find the perfect, successful husband, but an unexpected meeting with penniless Jimmy Smith might just change all that. Filled with dancing flappers, dashing leading men, and a dragon lady of a villainess that you'll love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is perfectly constructed madcap merriment. The score includes notable favorites like "Forget About the Boy;" "I Turned the Corner;" "Gimme, Gimme;" and, of course, the toe-tapping title tune.
