Best Musical (2004)
TUTS's Thoroughly Modern Millie Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan's Tony Award-winning Thoroughly Modern Millie is the sort of charming musical that comes along too rarely. And Theatre Under the Stars' summer production at the Hobby Center offered Houston audiences an especially electrifying theater experience. Combining romance, intrigue and some unexpected humor, the tale bubbled over with the flair and charisma of a big Broadway smash. The story followed Millie (Darcie Roberts), who had to save her new friend Miss Dorothy Brown (Diana Kaarina) from an evil trader in white slavery. Hysterical intrigue followed our heroine through all sorts of dangerous fixes before everything turned out just fine in the end, thank you very much.
