Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film, Thoroughly Modern Millie will undertake a major UK tour in 2017.
It’s the roaring 20’s, Millie Dillmount from Kansas, steps off the train into a New York city filled with speakeasies, frivolous flappers and the pulsating sounds of syncopated jazz. America has thrown off its inhibitions and anything goes! Millie’s ‘modern’ plan is to work in a typing pool and marry the wealthy boss. But then she meets and falls in love with Jimmy, a man without a dime to his name… or so she thinks.
From explosive tap routines to a ‘Fred and Ginger’ routine on a window ledge Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment for all the family.
The winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002 season's most awarded new show on Broadway!
Thoroughly Modern Millie has a book by original screenwriter Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan, new music by Jeanine Tesori, and new lyrics by Dick Scanlan. The 2017 UK Tour of Thoroughly Modern Millie will be directed by Gary Lloyd.
