Mrs. Miller Does Her Thing

by James Lapine

February 28 – March 26, 2017


Pulitzer Prize winner James Lapine’s (Sunday in the Park with George) delightful new play stars Emmy and Tony Award® winner Debra Monk (Mozart in the Jungle, Grey’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,” “Girl from Ipanema” and more. Simply irresistible, when Mrs. Miller does her thing, it’s so bad—it’s good.

Mrs. Miller Does Her Thing will run for approximately one hour and 45 minutes, with no intermission.

Mrs. Miller Does Her Thing contains theatrical haze, mild drug usage, and includes smoke from an herbal simulated drug.
