I saw the JCS tour back in October. It was fine. Nothing that special, except I thought Eric Kunze and Natalie Toro were just wonderful.

The sets were at times either too over the top or too boring, and "Herod's Song" was that bad kind of uncomfortable.

I saw TMM. It was good overall. Darcie Roberts definitely shows her ability to play the part well, Hollis Resnik did a fabulous job. The only aspect of the show I found impossible to adapt to was Matt Cavanaugh's take on Jimmy. His accent rang too close to home -- Urban Cowboy. Other than that, I'd give the show 3 1/2 stars.

Is there any way to find out who the cast is in a given leg of the tour? And who the producers are, and if they are equity/non-equity? (Not to open that debate again, just where the info might be available to someone willing to spend a little time on the web looking for it.)

If you go to ModernMillie.com, you can find the touring cast. I posted the link in this thread. Hopefully it shows.

I just saw the Thoroughly Modern Millie tour on Sunday, actually, and I enjoyed it very much. Darcie is very talented, and I was also very impressed with Diana Kaarina (Miss Dorothy) and Hollis Resnik (Mrs. Meers) and their Muzzy is fantastic. Overall, it is a well put together production and definitely worth seeing.

hmm I saw JCS and Millie, both were outstanding!!!!!

I cried in JCS! it was a very emotional show and I have to say I don't tink I've heard a cast sound that wonderful vocally! it was just jaw-dropping!

Millie, my first time and definetly won't be my last! it was wonderful and I can't wait to see it again. I was a lil scared at the beginning, b/c I'm a Sutton Fan so I didn't know really what to expect but Darcie Roberts definetly grows on you and by Gimmie Gimmie I was in shock! she was just stunning! I gave standing ovations the entire bows

I've seen the Millie tour a few times and I highly recommend it if it's coming near you! It's a very solid show and though it (obviously) is different from the Broadway production, the tour cast is fabulous. Darcie is a v. good Millie and Diana Kaarina is a fantastic Miss Dorothy- all the leads are great and their ensemble is also v. strong. =)

I walked into MILLIE not knowing what to think of it, and loved it! The cast is great, and the production is quite solid!
