Preview: Dolly Parton Presents 9 to 5 The Musical at London’s Savoy Theatre
LONDON – Coming to London in 2019 is legendary Queen of Country music Dolly Parton as she presents hit musical 9 to 5!
Based off the 1980 film of the same name, 9 to 5 plays at the Savoy Theatre from 28th January to 31st August 2019 for a strictly limited season, featuring a book by the film’s original screenwriter Patricia Resnick, music and lyrics by Parton herself, and in its original Broadway run, was nominated for multiple awards.
Directed by theatre veteran Jeff Calhoun, 9 to 5 tells the story of Doralee, Violet and Judy – three office workmates pushed to their very limits as they are worked to the bone by their sexist and egotistical boss. When they finally reach breaking point, the girls concoct a plan to kidnap and turn the tables on their despicable supervisor. Can the girls use their plan to reform their office, as they team up, stand up for themselves and take care of business? Or will things fall apart when the CEO pays an unexpected visit?
This brand new West End production of 9 to 5 stars Louise Redknapp as ‘Violet’, Amber Davies as ‘Judy’, Natalie McQueen as ‘Doralee’ and Brian Conley as their hellish boss, ‘Franklin’. Next year, shake the office blues aside and get ready to go on a hilarious, madcap adventure led by three stunning ladies as 9 to 5 checks in to the Savoy Theatre this coming January!
9 to 5 runs at the Savoy Theatre, London from 28th January to 31st August 2019. Tickets available here
