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, Chelsea Halfpenny, Bonnie Langford and Natalie McQueen star in the musical, alongside Brian Conley from 2 March 2020.
Redknapp made her West End debut in 9 to 5 in 2019, 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. Chelsea Halfpenny makes her West End debut, fresh from appearing on BBC's Casualty.
Please note that Sean Needham will perform as Franklin Hart Jr. from 10 to 29 February 2020.
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.
