This high-spirited musical comedy has it all. When small-town girl Millie Dillmount moves to New York City in 1922, she discovers a world filled with intrigue, jazz and danger. In her quest to move up in the world of glitz and glamour, Millie discovers there is more to being a modern girl than she imagined. Danger is around every corner, and it’s up to Millie to save the day, expose her sinister landlady, and finally marry her boss – whoever he may be. Adapted from the beloved 1967 Oscar-winning film starring Julie Andrews and Mary Tyler Moore, this recent 2002 Broadway hit was a winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
