Show #3
THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
Encores 2020 Season
New York City CenterArtistic Director: Jack Viertel
Book by: Richard Morris & Dick Scanlan
Music by: Jeanine Tesori
Director: Lear deBessonet
Creative Consultant: Lauren Yee
Choreographer: Camille Brown
Musical Director: Rob Berman
Casting: Binder Casting

Rehearsal: 4/21/20
Open: 5/6/20
Close: 5/10/20

Note: THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE originally opened on Broadway in 2002. Like the film on which it is based, it interpolates new tunes with some previously written songs. This production will be a thoroughly reimagined interpretation focusing strongly on the determination of a young woman coming to the big city, fighting to make a new life for herself and surviving in the “modern world”. Millie is a fighter and determined to achieve self-revelation of what it means to step into a new version of one’s self. In essence, we are filtering the struggles and triumphs of a modern-day woman through the lens of the 1920s.
