Thoroughly Modern Millie : 5 of 5
Even though I had been to New York City three times before, I had never seen a Broadway musical. My fourth trip with my parents changed all that - my first Broadway show ever was Thoroughly Modern Millie. This is exactly what you picture when you think of Broadway - tap dancing, beautiful songs, a love story, and a girl struggling to make it big in the big city. Everyone in the show was amazing, especially Sutton Foster as Millie. Her big song in Act Two (Gimme, Gimme) was incredible - every time I thought it couldn't get any better she just kept taking it further (I was in tears, of course)! The sets were wonderful, with rotating floors and working elevators, but the overall story and music really made the show. I can't imagine a better Broadway music to have been my first!
