"9 TO 5: The Musical” is a high-energy
ideal for a large, mostly female cast with its jubilant score and
easily relatable characters. Pushed to the boiling point by their boss,
three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist,
egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call
their boss. They conspire to take control of their company and learn
there's nothing they can't do -- even in a man's world. Set in the late
1970s, "9 TO 5: The Musical” is
a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic, the musical is about teaming up and
taking care of business.
