"9 to 5" Opens on Broadway

The musical version of Dolly Partons "9 to 5" opened to rave reviews April 30th on Broadway at the Marquis Theatre. Telling the original story of three gals who take revenge on their boss, the musical version was written completely by Dolly, including all music and lyrics. Aside from the title tune, the show also includes "Backwoods Barbie" which was the title of Dollys last CD, and is her current single and video.

The show stars Emmy winner Allison Janney, Stephanie Block and Megan Hillty.

On May 1, the show received a record breaking 15 nominations from the Drama Desk Awards, the most ever for any show in one season. Those awards will be named on May 17th.
