Dolly Parton's musical adaptation of the popular movie.
New York City workers who played hooky and ducked into the Lincoln Center Barnes & Noble on July 14 got a special treat: the stars of 9 to 5 singing and signing their original cast recording. In addition to their performances, 9 to 5ers Alison Janney, Stephanie J. Block, Megan Hilty and Marc Kudisch offered the enthusiastic crowd a break from office gossip and stale break room coffee with anecdotes about their show’s award-winning composer/lyricist Dolly Parton. The whole event was a huge pre-sale; the CD will be released in stores on the Dolly Parton label on July 28. (It’s already available at the Marquis Theatre, where 9 to 5 punches in eight times a week).
