Mrs. Miller Does Her Thing

Performance Dates

Pulitzer Prize winner James Lapine’s (Sunday in the Park with George) new comedy stars Emmy and Tony Award® winner Debra Monk (Mozart in the JungleGrey’s Anatomy) as Mrs. Miller.

Mrs. Miller can’t sing—but don’t tell her that. Based on the real life story of Elva Miller, this touching and funny portrait offers Monk the role of a lifetime as the devoted, warbling songstress whose operatic, off-key singing became an unlikely pop phenomenon in the 1960s. Take a delectable romp through hits like “Downtown,” “Monday Monday,” “A Hard Day’s Night” and more. Simply irresistible, when Mrs. Miller does her thing, it’s so bad—it’s good.
