Thoroughly Modern Millie

by

comment
Dozens of Broadway musicals have been adapted from the stage to the screen, but such a straight and narrow path would be entirely too conventional for Thoroughly Modern Millie. The hit musical, which opened on Broadway in 2002, is liberally adapted from the 1967 Academy Award-winning film of the same name starring Julie Andrews and Mary Tyler Moore. While most of the songs are changed, the story remains the same: A small-town girl named Millie searches for a rich husband in Roaring Twenties New York but ends up embroiled in a kidnapping plot. The Kirkwood Theater Guild presents Thoroughly Modern Millie at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (May 1 through 10) at the Reim Theatre in the Kirkwood Community Center (111 South Geyer Road, Kirkwood; 314-821-9956 or www.ktg-onstage.org). Tickets are $22.
Sundays, 2 p.m.; Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: May 1. Continues through May 10, 2015
