BWW Reviews: The Empress Theatre takes on THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIEBWW Reviews: The Empress Theatre takes on THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
by Rob Myers - Jun 7, 2015

Try if you might to sit still and not tap your feet or snap your fingers during any musical set in the 1920's. The comedy is slapstick and somewhat cheeky at times. The music is simple, and yet it moves the story along just right. The characters are flighty and aloof, yet you root for them as they lure you into their realm of existence. The Empress Theatre's "Thoroughly Modern Millie" fits that bill to a tee! (more...)

BWW Reviews: GCT Brings On Splashy, Roaring THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIEBWW Reviews: GCT Brings On Splashy, Roaring THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
by Don Grigware - Aug 31, 2014

The 1920s were not called the roaring twenties for nothing, and when 'modern' girls came from small towns across America to New York to seek a job, a husband and money, they were an overabundant lot. Take Millie Dillmount (Allyson Spiegelman) for example, who, like many others, sets her eyes, but hardly her heart, on dreamy boss Trevor Graydon (Kelby Thwaits), who also has eyes for Miss Dorothy Brown (Deanna Bakker). Add Jimmy Smith (Jason Webb), who literally ran into Millie on the streets and then pops back into the picture, attempting to win her over romantically. Welcome to modern big city living: take a number, stand in line. And there's even more discouragement. Apart from New York's degrading social life led by Muzzy Van Hossmere (Julia Marie Rodriguez), Millie is living in a den of iniquity the Priscilla Hotel where hostess Mrs.Meers (Alison England) has a side job selling orphan girls into white slavery. However, despite all these calamities, big and small, there's an air of the ridiculous surrounding them. Based on the 1967 film which starred Julie Andrews, Mary Tyler Moore and Carol Channing, TMM is an ode to madcap senselessness, and go no further than to Glendale and GCT for a nifty revival now onstage through October 4.
