The 15th anniversary reunion concert of the 2002 Tony-winning musical Thoroughly Modern Millie reunites many of the original cast members from the Broadway production. The Actors Fund benefit event is presented February 12 at the Minskoff Theatre.
The 7:30 PM concert will star Tony Award winners Sutton Foster, Gavin Creel, and Harriet Harris, reprising their respective roles as Millie Dillmount, Jimmy Smith, and Mrs. Meers, alongside other original cast members including Marc Kudisch, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Francis Jue, and Anne L. Nathan. Megan McGinnis, who appeared in the original production as a replacement, will also take part.
Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film, Thoroughly Modern Millie features a book by Dick Scanlan (who also penned the lyrics) and Richard Morris and music by Jeanine Tesori.
Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002–2003 season's most celebrated show, nominated for 12 Tony Awards and winning six, including Best Musical, Best Actress in a Musical (Foster), Best Featured Actress in a Musical (Harris), Best Costume Design (Martin Pakledinaz), Best Choreography (Ashford), and Best Orchestrations (Doug Besterman and Ralph Burns).
