Note: LOVE LIFE originally opened on Broadway in 1948 at the 46th Street Theatre (now the Richard Rodgers), starring Nanette Fabray and Ray Middleton. The show told the story of a married couple, Sam and Susan Cooper, who never age as they progress from 1791 to 1948. One of the first examples of the concept musical, the action of Love Life was interspersed with vaudeville-style numbers that commented on the story through successive periods of American history.

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

Choreographer: Camille Brown
Musical Director: Rob Berman

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.
