*Musical: Rome Capitol Summerstage presents
THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
Thursday-Saturday, August 4-6, 7:30 pm
The winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002 season's most awarded new show on Broadway! Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film, Thoroughly Modern Millie
takes you back to the height of the Jazz Age in New York City, when
"moderns" including a flapper named Millie Dillmount were bobbing their
hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce, and rewriting the
rules of love. This high-spirited musical romp is a delightful
valentine to the long-standing spirit of New York City and the people
who seek to discover themselves there.
Set in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie
tells the story of young Millie Dillmount from Kansas who comes to New
York in search of a new life for herself. Her grand plan is to find a
job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her
plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young
girls to sell to the Far East; her wealthy boss is slow in proposing
marriage; and the man she actually falls in love with doesn't have a
dime to his name—or so he tells her.
Adults $17, Seniors $16, Capitol Friends $15,
Students and Children 12 & Under $12.
