Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film, "Thoroughly Modern Millie" takes you back to the height of the New York City Jazz Age, when "moderns” were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce and rewriting the rules of love. Flapper Millie Dillmount is on the hunt for a rich husband but falls for a penniless paperclip salesman instead. A mix of madcap mistaken identity, high-spirited show tunes and tap-happy production numbers with more kick than bootleg gin, "Thoroughly Modern Millie" is truly the “bee’s knees!”
Beat the drums because Thoroughly Modern Millie is a hit! As the nightcap to Pittsburgh CLO's 2018 summer season, Millieis nothing short of a flapper girl's dream and a theatergoer's desire.https://t.co/auLUUiKtNK pic.twitter.com/YQ4r8o7S0Z— BWW Pittsburgh (@bww_pittsburgh) August 9, 2018
