Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr. is a high-spirited musical romp that has all of New York dancing the Charleston. It's the zany 1920's musical that took Broadway by storm!  Taking place in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of young Millie Dillmount, who has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself. It's a New York full of intrigue and jazz - a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever.  Based on the popular movie, the stage version of Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr. features hits including "Not for the Life of Me," "Forget About the Boy" and "Gimme, Gimme".  The original Broadway production won six Tony Awards in 2002 including Best Musical.
