PostSubject: Thoroughly Modern Millie   Sun Feb 04 2007, 20:32

My friend is doing this play at her highschool, hence how I started hearing about it lol couple of days ago I saw clips from the Broadway version with Sutton Foster on YouTube and I instantely fell in love with it. The actors are as great as the plot story and the songs are amazing!

Since I suck at making summaries I'll just put the wikipedia one XD (gotta love that site)

Quote :
The plot revolves around Millie Dillmount, who escapes to New York City from Salina, Kansas determined to marry her wealthy boss - whomever he may be. Shedding her country girl image for the modern look of a "flapper", she takes a room at the Priscilla Hotel for Women and gets a job as a stenographer at the Sincere Trust Insurance Company. In short time, she finds herself involved with Jimmy Smith, an apparently ne'er-do-well paper clip salesman, Miss Dorothy Brown, a genteel aspiring actress who never seems to have spare change, Trevor Graydon, her no-nonsense boss, and Muzzy van Hossmere, a madcap Manhattan heiress with a zest for the high life.


And while I'm at it might as well put in clips found on YouTube lol most are songs from the original broadway show in 2002, but some clips are from tv shows during which the same cast performed it (like at the Tony Awards)
