Bryan Blanks is the director of the musical "Thoroughly Modern Millie," which closes the summer season at Corn Stock Theatre. He describes it as a high-energy show, that's appropriate and fun for all ages. Set in the Flapper era of the 1920s, it tells the story of a young woman who sets out for New York City to marry for money. Blanks talks about the music of the show, which hearkens back to the jazz age, and the intense, tap-driven choreography. He also talks about his attempts to keep the production moving across scene changes, and about staging the action in the Corn Stock's tent theatre.
"Thoroughly Modern Millie" opens tonight. Performances continue through Saturday, September 2nd, at the Corn Stock Tent.
