Broadway Bound 9 To 5 To Begin Previews In Los Angeles Tonight
Following a delay due to technical difficulties 9 to 5:The Musical is now set to begin previews at the Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles.9 to 5:The Musical has music and lyrics by seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Parton, book by Patricia Resnick and choreography by Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (In The Heights) and direction by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello.(Wicked) Parton's original score for 9 to 5: The Musical includes over 20 new songs as well as the Grammy Award-winning, Academy Award-nominated No. 1 Billboard title song. "Backwoods Barbie," heard on Parton's new album of the same name, is also part of the show's score, Parton previously said.
Multiple Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Allison Janney stars as Violet Newstead, the super efficient office manager who joins her co-workers — the frazzled divorcee Judy Bernly, played by Stephanie J. Block, and the sexy executive secretary Doralee Rhodes, played by Megan Hilty, to turn the tables on their boss, the "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot" Franklin Hart, Jr., played by two-time Tony Award nominee Marc Kudisch.
Following its Los Angeles run, 9 to 5 will begin Broadway previews March 24, 2009, and open April 23, 2009, at the Marquis Theatre.
