BWW Review: THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE, Churchill Theatre, Bromley
by Vikki Jane Vile - Jun 7, 2017

This take on the Hollywood classic Thoroughly Modern Millie last played Broadway back in 2002.

Mrs Meers with her chopstick clad hair and mock Chinese accent is amusing for ten minutes but after a couple of scenes just seems plain racist. Millie's chunk of the plot hangs on the idea that she needs to find a rich man to marry to get on in life. Where do I even start with that one? (more...)
