The Benedum Center is proud to present six-time Tony Award-winning musical Thoroughly Modern Millie. Internationally acclaimed and raved about worldwide, this performance will be like nothing you've ever seen before.
Based on the 1967 film of the same name (which itself was based on the 1956 British musical Chrysanthemum), Thoroughly Modern Milliefeatures music by Jeanine Tesori, lyrics by Dick Scanlan, and a book by Richard Morris and Scanlan. The musical premiered on Broadway in 2002 and tells the story of Millie Dermont — a small town girl who arrives in New York City in 1922 with big, and thoroughly modern, plans. Our progressive heroine intends to marry, and for money, not for love. She revels in living the flapper lifestyle, until things go somewhat awry for madcap Millie when she checks in at the Hotel Priscilla.
