  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Thoroughly Modern Millie

    All Right, Everyone: Smile!

    Ben Brantley

    April 19, 2002: IT is tempting to imagine the inspirational advice taped to the dressing room mirrors of the Marquis Theater, where ''Thoroughly Modern Millie'' opened last night -- those encouraging little mantras that help performers give their all. The advice would probably be written in crayon, with the i's, perhaps, dotted with smiley faces. And the words of wisdom might include something like the following: Why bother to smile unless you show all your teeth? When you land a punch line, jump on it with two feet. Cute is not a dirty word. Dance as if the jobs of multitudes depended on it: they do.
