THE LONDON REVIVAL PLAYED AT
THE LANDOR THEATRE
18 August - 13 September 2015
This new production of Thoroughly Modern Millie, marked the show’s triumphant return to London 12 years after it was first seen at the Shaftesbury Theatre.
Originally presented on Broadway in 2002, Thoroughly Modern Millie won six Tony Awards (including Best New Musical) and five Drama Desk Awards; the West End production was nominated for three Olivier Awards, also including Best New Musical.
Based on the popular movie and filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a villainess, the infamous Mrs Meers, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed show of madcap merriment that will have everyone dancing the Charleston.
Set in New York 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. 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 behaviour were changing forever.
