“Breezy, frothy and unapologetically joyful, “Millie” is a daiquiri to those heavy ales and a tonic for whatever ails you.” – Variety
“A thoroughly feel-good, joyous romp…perfect family entertainment.” – The Examiner
A high-spirited, zany new 1920’s musical romp that had all of New York dancing the Charleston and took Broadway by storm! Taking place in New York City in 1922, it tells the story of young Millie Dillmount, who has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself. It’s a New York full of intrigue and jazz – a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment. And with the role of Millie Dillmount, musical theatre has found a new heroine for the ages!
