About the showPour yourself a cup of ambition!
Dolly Parton’s rollicking 9 to 5 the Musical arrives in the West End for a strictly limited season. Playing at the Savoy Theatre, the fun-loving, female-led show is a hilarious stage adaptation of the 1980 movie of the same name, featuring music and lyrics by the beloved country singer.
Following Doralee, Violet and Judy, 9 to 5 is the story of female power and feminism, as the three workmates are pushed to the edge by an awfully sexist supervisor. As the three ladies team up, they vow to take revenge and reform the office. That is, until the CEO pays a visit and things quickly threaten to unravel…
An outrageous but incredibly thought-provoking show that is pertinent to the current social climate, 9 to 5 the Musical includes an Oscar, Grammy and Tony Award-nominated soundtrack by legend Dolly Parton. With toe-tapping numbers including “Around Here”, “Heart to Hart” and the well-known titular number “Nine to Five”, prepare for a night of super entertainment.
Louise Redknapp, Amber Davies, Bonnie Langford and Natalie McQueen star in the musical, alongside entertainer Brian Conley. Due to Redknapp's recent injury, Caroline Sheen will step in to play her part (that of character Violet Newstead) until the end of March.
Redknapp recently appeared in the UK tour of Cabaret, whilst McQueen starred as Lauren in Kinky Boots at the Adelphi Theatre. Bonnie Langford most recently starred in 42nd Street on the West End and played Carmel in Eastenders. Amber Davies makes her West End debut, fresh from appearing on ITV’s Love Island. Caroline Sheen performed in the original cast of Mamma Mia! and played Eponine in Les Misérables during its Palace Theatre run.
Presented by Dolly Parton herself, the musical features a book by Patricia Resnick, and is based on the 20th Century Fox Picture which starred Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Parton.
A hugely funny, provocative and even romantic musical, 9 to 5 the Musical plays a strictly limited season at London’s Savoy Theatre from 28 January to 31 August 2018.
