Music Review: Thoroughly Modern Millie: Broadway Cast Recording
I have listen to the original broadway cast CD and is not the entire musical. As for the story this is a love musical. It is based on the 1967 movie of the same name. Many people fall in love. Millie, from Kansas, heads to New York to find a wealthy man. She does not want a man for love, but finds herself falling in love with "Jimmy." This musical is based in the 1920s and the music reflects this. One of my favorites was "The Speed Test." The music for this song is very clever. "Gimme Gimme" is Millie's song when she realizes she is going to marry for love in the end. The other fun song is "Thoroughly Modern Millie." The music is written by Jeanine Tesori but there are other composers of some of the numbers. Sutton Foster is introduced as Millie and Gavin Creel stars as Jimmy.
