9 to 5: The Musical Comes To Broadway

Chances are, you’ve seen it in the movie theatre or on DVD. Now you can see it on Broadway! 9 to 5: The Musical is currently playing at Broadway’s Marquis Theatre. The show, from multiple Grammy Award winner Dolly Parton, Tony Award winning director Joe Mantello and Tony Award winning choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler, is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. The all-new musical comedy features the blockbuster title song plus an exciting new score of 18 original numbers by Dolly Parton herself. This delightful new hit is a winner that leaves the audience cheering. I loved it!
The Hollywood Reporter is calling it “Wild and witty and greatly entertaining!”-
It has one of the greatest and most memorable lines in motion picture history and that comes from Dolly's character Doralee to her boss Mr. Hart. After him coming on to her she says, "You say one more word about me and I'll get that gun of mine and turn you from a rooster to a hen with one shot!" Classic!
9 to 5: The Musical stars four-time Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Allison Janney as Violet, Stephanie J. Block as Judy, Megan Hilty as Dorelee, and two-time Tony Award nominee Marc Kudisch as Mr. Hart. (Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Parton and Dabney Coleman played the respective roles in the movie.)
Here's the plot: "When pushed to their boiling point by their boss, Franklin Hart Jr. (Marc Kudisch), Violet Newstead (Allison Janney), the super efficient office manager, Judy Bernly (Stephanie J. Block), a frazzled divorcee, and the sexy executive secretary Doralee Rhodes (Megan Hilty) turn the tables on him. The trio hatches a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot, and that plan quickly spins wildly and hilariously out of control."
