9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL, coming to the Toronto Centre for the Arts June 29-July 10, 2011, is a hilarious workplace comedy about friendship, revenge and a scheming secretarial pool who team up to take care of business by getting even with their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigoted boss!
Based on the 1980 hit film starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, 9 to 5 was the highest-grossing comedy of that year and a groundbreaking look at sexual harassment in corporate culture. The film became such a sensation because women everywhere could empathize with the plight of their “sisters,” as well as revel in the retribution served to the big bad boss.
9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL, a nostalgic romp through an era when the word “secretary” was not yet politically incorrect and women strived to “bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan,” features the iconic, Grammy® award-winning title track "9 to 5" and 12 new songs written by Dolly Parton. 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL stars three-time Tony® nominated Dee Hoty as Violet (Footloose, The Best Little Whorehouse Goes Public and The Will Rogers Follies), Texas-born Mamie Parris as Judy (Ragtime, The Drowsy Chaperone, Legally Blonde the Musical), and American Idol runner-up Diana DeGarmo as Doralee (Hair, Hairspray and The Toxic Avenger).
Tired of banging their heads against a low-hanging glass ceiling, three unlikely friends conspire to take over the corporation from their bullying boss. 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL still makes relevant statements about pink- collar politics today, but not without the requisite 80s big hair, shoulder pads, and a hysterically funny revenge fantasy, most certainly harbored by many of the “administrative assistants” working 9 to 5 in Toronto every day.
What a way to make a livin’!
