Saturday, May 9, 2015, 7:00 p.m.
With the popularity of Glee, American Idol and Hollywood's Musical Blockbusters Broadway has entered a new Golden Era, and Susan Egan brings it all together into one concert! Tony-nominated as the original "Belle" in Beauty and the Beast, critically-acclaimed as "Sally Bowles" in Cabaret, and NY's latest Thoroughly Modern Millie, Susan is one of Broadway's most celebrated contemporary performers. Come see why the NY Post calls her "electrifying" as she highlights classic tunes by Gershwin, Porter, and Arlen, modern standards by Kander and Ebb, Alan Menken, and Stephen Schwartz and music from NY's hottest new writers. Critics have dubbed her voice the "perfect Broadway instrument," and her show as a riotous "all-night conversation with your best friend." Audiences around the world agree!
THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE
Our 5th Professional Production for the Community
July 16-19, 2015
The winner of six TONY Awards including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002 season’s most awarded new show on Broadway! Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film, Thoroughly Modern Millie takes you back to the height of the Jazz Age in New York City, when “moderns”—including a flapper named Millie Dillmount—were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce, and rewriting the rules of love. This high-spirited musical romp is a delightful valentine to the long-standing spirit of New York City and the people who seek to discover themselves there, and musical theatre has a heroine for the ages in Thoroughly Modern Millie!
