Playing a theatre in the center of Times Square, this musical comedy tells the story of a naive young woman coming to the big city in the middle of the Jazz Age, determined to make it big.
Closing Date at the Marquis Theatre: June 20, 2004
Families with older children seem to enjoy this big, bright, chipper show about a girl just off the train from Kansas, arriving in New York City circa 1922. In thrall to the sights, sounds and smells of the city (trust us - the smells get old real quick), Millie sidesteps slave-traders, conniving capitalists, and the small darknesses of the city on her way to finding true modern love.
The story is played out on a stage of many, many colors and features a thoroughly ennervated ensemble that would do Judy and Mickey proud. This is a by-the-numbers, boilerplate Broadway show, but when the numbers are this much fun, that's a good thing.
Casting News: Susan Egan is now playing the title role. Dixie Carter left the show June 6.
