About Thoroughly Modern Millie
A high-spirited musical romp that has all of New York dancing the Charleston. It is the story of a small-town girl, Millie Dillmount, who comes to New York City in 1922 at the height of the Wall Street boom. She bobs her hair, assumes the modern look of a “flapper,” and is determined to marry for money instead of love – a thoroughly modern aim in 1922, when women were just entering the workforce. The show is filled with great songs, fabulous dance numbers, and of course, a great love story.
