In a press statement, Parton has commented, "I am so excited that 9 to 5 the Musical is coming to the UK. I'm hoping that you have as much fun watching it as I had writing the music for it. 9 to 5 the Musical is perfect for anyone that's ever wanted to string up their boss, which is almost all of us. So come join the fun."
The score features 18 original Dolly Parton numbers including the hit title song which won her an Oscar nomination, plus songs from her last two albums. The tour is produced by Howard Panter for Ambassador Theatre Gorup and Bob Bartner. Casting is still to be announced.
