9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)
Based on the hit 1980 movie starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin, 9 to 5 The Musical tells the story about three workmates pushed to a boiling point by their sexist and egotistical boss. Outrageously funny, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic, this musical is about friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era.
