Following a March 5-24 run in Jupiter, FL, the show plays Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, NJ, April 10-May 5.
Carleigh Bettiol, Craig Blake, Barry Busby, Darien Crago, Patch David, Ian DeVine, Charlie Johnson, Ian Liberto, Sarah Meahl, Lizzy Palmer, Kristyn Pope, Kelly Skidmore, Amy Van Norstrand and John T. Wolfe round out the ensemble.
Based on the 1967 film of the same name, Thoroughly Modern Millie, according to press notes, "tells the story of a small-town girl who travels to New York City to marry for money instead of love."
The prolific producer, along with frequent collaborator Neil Meron, was behind such musical-driven projects as Smash, NBC’s live musicals, and the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
