Dolly Parton's 9 to 5 Musical Premiere

Based on the film of the same name and featuring a score by Dolly Parton, 9 to 5 had its highly anticipated opening night on Broadway at the Marquis Theatre on April 30 and all three of the film’s leading ladies – Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda were in attendance. On stage Allison Janney, Stephanie J. Block, Megan Hilty and Marc Kudisch star in the show, which is directed by Joe Mantello. The story of the musical is pretty much the same as the 1980 film. When pushed to the boiling point by their boss, Franklin Hart Jr. [Kudisch), super-efficient office manager Violet Newstead [Janney), frazzled divorcee Judy Bernly [Block) and sexy executive secretary Doralee Rhodes [Hilty) hatch a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot, which quickly spins wildly and hilariously out of control.

Also featured in the cast are Andy Karl, Kathy Fitzgerald, Ioana Alfonso, Timothy Anderson, Jennifer Balagna, Justin Bohon, Paul Castree, Daniel Cooney, Jeremy Davis, Gaelen Gilliland, Autumn Guzzardi, Ann Harada, Lisa Howard, Van Hughes, Brendan King, Michael X. Martin, Michael Mindlin, Karen Murphy, Mark Myars, Justin Patterson, Jessica Lea Patty, Charlie Pollock, Tory Ross, Wayne Schroder, Maia Nkenge Wilson and Brandi Wooten.
