Delta's Broadway Debut: Photo Coverage
On September 30th, Delta Burke debuted as Mrs. Meers in "Thoroughly Modern Millie". Here are photos from her curtain call and party. Based on the 1967 Oscar-nominated film, the new Broadway musical comedy Thoroughly Modern Millie takes audiences back to the height of the Jazz Age in New York City when "moderns" - including a flapper named Millie Dillmount - were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce, and rewriting the rules of love. This delightful valentine to the longstanding spirit of New York City and the people who seek to discover themselves there features 18 songs, including three from the 1967 film, four standards from the 1920s, and 11 new songs by Jeanine Tesori (music) and Dick Scanlan (lyrics). Winner - six 2002 Tony Awards, including Best Musical!
