"9 to 5" by Dolly Parton ( .rm | 3.20Mb )
Dolly Parton’s songwriting skills along with her desire to DAZZLE … were made for Broadway. Megan Hilty, Allison Janney and Stephanie J. Block rise to the occasion and exhibit a fine chemistry together.
Marc Kudisch is devilishly good. Dolly Parton, Patricia Resnick, choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler and director Joe Mantello have done A SENSATIONAL JOB.” - Jay Reiner, The Hollywood Reporter
Nothing gets the comic juices flowing like a workplace revenge fantasy… A LAUGH RIOT. In terms of box office, [it] has the potential to rescue the next big bank failure.” - Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times
with dynamite performances by the three leading women…a rollicking score by Dolly Parton, a clever and fast-paced script by the movie’s screenwriter, Patricia Resnick, and spectacular direction by Tony-winner Joe Mantello.” - Neal Weaver, LA Weekly
“Allison Janney brings a long-limbed elegance to the part…Her big, expressive eyes and deadpan delivery are perfect …. Megan Hilty is pitch-perfect… Stephanie J. Block hits it out of the park.” - Paul Hodgins, The Orange County Register
- Bob Verini, Variety
In an exclusive interview Dolly Parton discusses what it was like writing the music for the upcoming "9 to 5: The Musical." Click the image to the right.
Don't miss this new musical comedy based on the classic hit movie! 9 to 5: The Musical features a brand-new score by seven-time Grammy Award®-winner Dolly Parton that includes the blockbuster title song, plus a book by original screenwriter Patricia Resnick and direction by two-time Tony Award®-winner Joe Mantello (directing his first new musical since Wicked).
Emmy Award®-winner and Tony Award®-nominee Allison Janney stars as Violet Newstead, the super-efficient office manager who joins her fellow co-workers - frazzled divorcée Judy Bernly (Stephanie J. Block) and sexy secretary Doralee Rhodes (Megan Hilty in the role originated by Dolly Parton in the film) - to turn the tables on their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot” of a boss, Franklin Hart, Jr. (Tony Award®-nominee Marc Kudisch).
In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy - giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover and rise to the top of the company that once looked at them as second-class citizens... A girl can scheme can't she?
