Show Description:

Thoroughly Modern Millie is a musical based on the 1967 film of the same name, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of a 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 problems arise when she checks into a hotel owned by the leader of a white slavery ring in China. The style of the musical is comic pastiche. Like the film on which it is based, it interpolates new tunes with some previously written songs.

After try-outs at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, California in October 2000, the show opened on Broadway in April 2002. The production subsequently won six 2002 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Due to the success of the original Broadway production, there were both a United States tour and a West End production launched in 2003, followed by a United Kingdom tour in 2005.
