The original Broadway company of the Tony Award-winning Best Musical Thoroughly Modern Millie reunites on February 12 for a concert performances New York theatre fans are losing their minds over. To celebrate the show, let's take a look at 12 fabulous performances of Millie's big, belty 11 o'clock number, "Gimme, Gimme".
What is there to say about perfection? Read what Sutton had to say about filming this moment here, and then just bask in the brilliance of it all.
You have to bow down to Catherine's Brunell's Millie belt. It's just so strong and clear. She has this song in her pocket.
When one of your favorite contemporary Broadway voices sings "Gimme, Gimme" you pay attention. Ms. Wolfe is ACTING this number—it's no prisoners approach when you're belting for the gods.
At age 14, this Miss Saigon Tony nominee nails it, giving us a glimpse of the international theatre star she would soon become. 14 years old. I snapped, waved, and shook my head at least a dozen times.
The Beauty and the Beast Tony nominee closed out the musical's Broadway run and hearing the warm tone of her voice on this song just makes the heart sing. I lived for that growly "I want it" at 2:36.
Never 7get when this fierce beltress wowed the crowd in the finale of The Glee Project. Rachel Berry could only wish. She was epic.
Speaking of Glee, when can Melissa come make her Broadway debut because this is BEYOND! Encores! Summer between shooting Supergirl? Anything?! Come on!
Grace Bydalek is an absolutely captivating performer. I couldn't stop watching her. Then she delivers the vocals on top of it all. I was shook from start to finish. This is one of my favorites on the whole list. Get her in a New York musical ASAP.
Anneliese van der Pol
To sing like this live at 9:28 AM? Tip of the hat. It's wildly abridged but the vocals and commitment don't waver. She SLAYS this.
Oh, Lala is giving a full-out performance, and I'm buying every second of it. This is a fresh, young Millie you'd root for, and then she serves major vocals at the end that make you want to watch it again.
Key words here are children's theatre and Millie JR, and yet these are the vocals. STOP IT! What a voice.
I am such a fan of Bonnie's big voice. She won me over by "clever girl". The rich layers in her voice kill me. Can't wait for her Broadway debut in Head Over Heels.
