The hit musical 9 to 5 is heading to the Edinburgh Playhouse in November. 9 to 5 The Musical is based on the book by Patricia Resnick with the Tony award-nominated score by country music icon Dolly Parton.
It’s the story of three workmates – Doralee, Violet and Judy – whose working lives are made a misery by their sexist and egotistical boss. They hatch a cunning plan to kidnap their manager and turn the tables on him. However, when the company’s chief executive pays an unexpected visit their plan hits a hitch.
Dolly Parton said “I am beyond thrilled to the response from across the pond to 9 to 5 The Musical. The overwhelmingly positive fan reaction to this universal story tickles every rhinestone on my body! I can’t wait for more people throughout the UK and Ireland to enjoy it and sing along”.
