9 to 5: The Musical at the Toronto Centre Main Stage in North York, ON, Closed July 10, 2011
From multiple Grammy Award®-winning songwriter DOLLY PARTON, the Tony Award®-winning director of Wicked and the Tony-winning choreographer of In The Heights comes 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL, a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. This all-new musical comedy based on the hit movie features the blockbuster title song plus an exciting new score of 18 original numbers by Dolly Parton that mix Broadway and pop with her signature witty lyrics.
Set in 1979 - when Wall Street was hot and 8-tracks were cool - 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is about three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can't do - even in a man's world! Outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic, 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is about teaming up and getting credit… it's about kicking butt and taking care of business.
“9 to 5, yeah, they got you where they want you.” Pushed to the boiling point by their boss, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot - a plan that spins wildly and hilariously out of control.
Three women depose their smarmy boss and begin making woman-friendly changes in the workplace. Based on the 1980 hit movie that starred Lily Tomlin (a victim of the glass ceiling), Jane Fonda (her husband left her for his secretary) and Dolly Parton (subject of sexual gossip spread by the boss).
