What a way to make a livin’! Dolly Parton’s 9 To 5 The Musical is coming to the West End, starring Louise Redknapp, Amber Davies, Natalie McQueen and Brian Conley.
The show’s run was confirmed with a tongue-in-cheek trailer starring Parton and the initial cast, which you can see below:
Based on the cult film, the hilarious 9 To 5 The Musical follows Doralee (McQueen), Violet (Redknapp) and Judy (Davies) – three workmates who are constantly pushed to boiling point by their sexist, narcissistic boss. But they’re about to turn the tables, concocting a scheme to overthrow him and reform their office… a scheme threatened by an unexpected visit from the CEO.
Presented by Parton herself, and starring Redknapp (who most recently starred in the national Cabaret tour, and reached the 2016 final of Strictly Come Dancing), Davies (a 2017 winner of Love Island), McQueen (currently playing Lauren in Kinky Boots), and Conley (previously in Hairspray, West End), this peppy pop musical is packed with star power.
9 To 5 features an original Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated score from pop icon Parton, and a book by Patricia Resnick, the film’s original screenwriter. Jeff Calhoun will direct.
Get ready, West End, because tickets are now on sale!
