The musical is based on the 1980 comedy movie, co-written by Patricia Resnick, the legendary film’s original screenwriter, and boasts an original Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score by country legend and pop icon Dolly Parton.
It tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three colleagues driven crazy by their sexist and egotistical boss. As they plot to kidnap their despicable manager, will the women succeed in reforming their office – or will events unravel when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?
Inspired by the cult movie, this hilarious new West End production is about teaming up, standing up and taking care of business.
Dolly Parton, the most honoured female country performer of all time, says of the tour: “I am beyond thrilled to the response from across the pond to 9 to 5 The Musical.
“The overwhelmingly positive fan reaction to this universal story tickles every rhinestone on my body. I can’t wait for more people throughout the UK and Ireland to enjoy it and sing along.”
9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL Original Broadway Cast Recording is also planned for re-release via Dolly Records/Sony Music.
