9 to 5 the Musical description
Everyone loves Dolly Parton, a real lady with a big heart and bags of talent. And everyone who has seen the 1980 movie 9-5 knows what a heart-warmer it is, a quirky story studded with jewel-like Dolly tunes that we all recognise and love.
When three working women live out their fantasies of getting even with their "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" of a boss, things soon get out of control to hilarious effect. The film was the 20th highest-grossing comedy film ever, and it shot Dolly into superstardom. There was a 5 season TV series spin-off, and this is the musical version of the film, featuring new songs written by Parton as well as the originals.
9-5 The Musical has the same magical music and lyrics. It features a book by Patricia Resnick, which is in turn based on the movie screenplay by Resnick and Colin Higgins. It premiered in Los Angeles ten years ago, in autumn 2008, and opened on Broadway the following spring. A box office smash, it It generated 15 Drama Desk Award nominations, the most ever received by a production in a single year. It also had four Tony Awards nominations. But the original Broadway production closed after a few short months. The time just wasn't right.
A national tour of the US in 2010 revived the musical, and a UK premiere in 2012 sealed its fate: we adored it. It came back in 2017, a new production shown at The Gatehouse, starring a West End cast and part of the London Fringe Festival. Now it's back for real, in the West End for the first time.
The word on the streets is Dolly fans are raring to go, and tickets are already selling like hot cakes for this strictly limited run. It stars the talented Louise Redknapp, Amber Davies, Natalie McQueen and Brian Conley. The show is is set to thrill you all over again if you're already a fan, and delight 9-5 newbies. Don't miss your chance to see a musical legend in the making!
