Flappers and love 

With ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’

MODERN: "Millie."
  • MODERN: "Millie."

The six-time Tony-Award-winning romantic musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie” finds its way to Robinson Center Music Hall for three shows beginning Monday, Feb. 13, featuring flappers dancing the Charleston, dashing leading men, a middle-American sweetheart, and a villainess who’s easy to hate.

Based on the popular Oscar-winning movie from 1967, “Thoroughly Modern Millie” won for best musical and best orchestration in 2002 along with four other Tonys, making it the most awarded new show on Broadway that year.

Joey McKneely directed and choreographed the show, which takes the audience back in time to the classic American musical. It features two songs from the movie, four standards from the 1920s and nine new songs written by Jeanine Tesori and Dick Scanlan. The setting is 1922 Manhattan during the time of jazz, speakeasies and illegal liquor. Midwestern native Millie Dillmount (Alex Ellis) sets out for New York in search of love and a “modern marriage.”

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. Ticket prices range from $17 to $52 through Celebrity Attractions, 244-8800 or www.celebrityattractions.com, or the regular Ticketmaster outlets (Harvest Foods stores, www.ticketmaster.com, 975-7575).

    Sen.

  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
