News   A Cup of Ambition: 9 to 5, the Musical, Will Get Staged Reading in June 9 to 5, the stage musical based on the 1980 film comedy, will take another step toward a wide future with a June staged reading in Manhattan, according to a casting notice.

Producer Robert Greenblatt's exploration of the material is under an Equity Special Agreement Staged Reading contract, and runs June 20-28.

As previously reported, the project has music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, book by original screenwriter/conceiver Patricia Resnick and direction by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Wicked, Blackbird, Take Me Out, Assassins).

Music director is Kevin Stites, general manager is Nina Lannan Associates and casting is by Telsey + Company.

As in the film, the story tells the tale of office co-workers Violet, Judy and Doralee, who are at odds with their sexist boss, smarmy Mr. Hart, and the office snitch, Roz.

Co-workers and kids of the office folk are also part of the mix in the musical.
