Dolly Parton’s legendary pop and country musical, 9 to 5 The Musical, is clocking in at the Savoy Theatre, packing plenty of star power.
Based on the brilliant cult film, 9 To 5 The Musical follows Doralee (Natalie McQueen), Violet (Caroline Sheen – from 25 March: Louise Redknapp) and Judy (Amber Davies) – three workmates who are constantly pushed to the edge by their sexist, narcissistic boss (played by Brian Conley).
But they’re about to turn the tables, pour themselves a cup of ambition, and dream up a scheme to bring him down and make the office as it should be… which all seems good, until the CEO unexpectedly arrives, and things begin to unravel.
Presented in the West End in collaboration with Parton herself, and starring Davies (a 2017 winner of Love Island), McQueen (currently playing Lauren in Kinky Boots), Bonnie Langford (recently seen in 42nd Street), and Conley (previously in Hairspray, West End), this peppy pop musical is brought to the stage by star performers.
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. Its witty book is by Patricia Resnick, the film’s original screenwriter. Jeff Calhoun directs.
The perfect post-work pick-me-up, or a hilarious night out, 9 To 5 The Musical is all about taking care of business – by taking on the man.
Please note that, having recovered from injury, Louise Redknapp will return to the role of Violet Newstead between 25 March – 29 June. Caroline Sheen will cover the role until her return. Please also note that Dolly Parton will not be appearing in this show.
