More Theater Information


Based on the hit 1980 film, which starred Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and the stage show’s composer/lyricist Dolly Parton, the Broadway musical adaptation follows three very different women all employed by mega-company Consolidated. The three women are Violet Newstead, a strong-willed longtime employee frequently passed over for promotion because of her gender, Judy Bernly, a mousy divorcee entering the workforce for the first time, and Doralee Rhodes, a sexy, sassy Southern spitfire frequently misunderstood by her coworkers. The trio are at the mercy of manipulative misogynist boss Franklin Hart Jr., who is better at sexually harassing his secretary than running a business. When Violet, Judy and Doralee have finally had enough, they concoct a half-cocked plan to kidnap Hart and hold him hostage in his own home while they get the ultimate revenge. But will their plot work? And can a team of secretaries really get ahead in the impenetrable boy’s club that is 9 to 5’s office hell?


A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"Parton's songs are, like most of the prolific tunesmith's efforts, eminently catch and listenable."

The Hollywood Reporter

Frank Scheck

"[Librettist] Patricia Resnick has retained a flair for wry, cheeky humor that is well served by the cast."

USA Today

Elysa Gardner

"A laugh-out-loud treatment of serious issues."

Entertainment Weekly

Simon Vozick-Levinson

"Parton's countrified pop fits perfectly on Broadway."

The New York Post

Elisabeth Vincentelli

"The lead performers are wonderful! Joe Mantello pulls out all the directorial stops on this sweetly silly musical."


Rome Torre

"The show is a little bit country and a little bit "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." Snatches of Andy Blankenbuehler's stylish choreography makes us wish there were more of it!"
