What a way to make a livin’! Dolly Parton and a star-studded cast brought the power to 9 To 5 The Musical to the Savoy Theatre when it had its official opening night earlier this week. And we were there to witness the glorious performance for ourselves!
It’s not every day you get to perform in front of an icon like Parton. And although the likes of Natalie McQueen, Amber Davies, Caroline Sheen and Louise Redknapp are packing no shortage of star star power themselves, it was still a huge occasion for them all. We found out how a special opening night felt for them – and for Dolly Parton herself.
9 To 5 is based on the 20th Century Fox Picture of the same name, and features an original Oscar, Grammy and Tony Award-nominated score from pop icon Parton.
The musical tells the story of three workmates who are constantly pushed to the edge by their sexist, narcissistic boss (played by Brian Conley).
The show is currently booking at the Savoy Theatre until 31 August.
