Best Musical Tony Award winner Thoroughly Modern Millie will strut her stuff for the Actor's Fund in a benefit performance Aug. 11 at the Marquis Theatre.

Among the characters she meets along the way are love interest Jimmy (Tony nominee Gavin Creel), fellow hotel resident Miss Dorothy (Angela Christian), serious bachelor businessman Trevor Graydon (Tony nominee Marc Kudisch), corrupt hotelier Mrs. Meers (Tony winner Harriet Harris), Chinese immigrants Bun Foo (Francis Jue) and Ching Ho (Ken Leung), Josephine Baker-style diva Muzzy Van Hossmere (Sheryl Lee Ralph) and Miss Flannery (Anne L. Nathan), the steno-pool matron.
