Allison Janney, Stephanie J. Block and Megan Hilty will star with Marc Kudisch in the Broadway-bound 9 to 5: The Musical, which features songs by Dolly Parton and a book by original screenwriter Patricia Resnick.
Based on the 1980 film, the new musical is described thusly: "When pushed to their boiling point by their boss, Franklin Hart Jr. (Kudisch), Violet Newstead (Janney), the super efficient office manager, Judy Bernly (Block), a frazzled divorcee, and the sexy executive secretary Doralee Rhodes (Hilty) turn the tables on him. The trio hatches a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot, and that plan quickly spins wildly and hilariously out of control."
