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).
