New Lyrics by Dick Scanla

Taking place in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie 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. Based on the popular movie, the stage version of Thoroughly Modern Millie includes a full score of new songs and bright dance numbers. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment. Thoroughly Modern Millie features a Book by Richard Henry Morris and Dick Scanlan, New Music by Jeanine Tesori and New Lyrics by Dick Scanlan, not to mention signature tap numbers reminiscent of the Golden Age of Broadway: "The Speed Test," and "Forget About the Boy."
