The musical was very entertaining. Lots of movement, scene changes, good music, good actors. Having Dolly Parton introduce/conclude the musical/play was an added bonus.
The only negative side to the play was that the singing voices were...continued

Fun, fast-paced romp. That said, characters and plot aren't revealed so much as presented, which means you get the Cliff's Notes version of the movie. Dolly Parton's intro video clips are fun, and give you the sense that everybody's included, and...continued

The show was great: lively, fun music, and funny, with wonderful choreography, dancing and performances.

As with so many Segerstrom Hall performances, it was very hard to hear at times.

9 to 5 The Musical delivered everything the movie did plus more. It was fun, energetic, and fantastic. I enjoyed the character development of Roz and the drunk lush even more than the movie did. Roz's musical number was indeed a highlight. Each of...continued

I love the movie. I liked the original production at the Ahmanson so much I saw it twice. This tour makes some huge conceptional changes including Dolly via taped clips several times. This title number is about as infectious as a song can get....continued

Very well done and most entertaining. Amazing how the props were made and moved to accommodate the story. A little difficulty hearing some dialogue from the upper tier, confirmed by others in our row (Row J)

I enjoyed the musical. It was funny and cheery. We were in the first tier and row R. I did have some difficulty in hearing all the lines, but it was a pleasant evening.

My daughter (age 14) and I attended Friday evening and had a WONDERFUL time! She hadn't see the movie (I had, of course) so she didn't know what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised; she definitely had some laugh-out-loud moments! The Dora-Lee...continued

I went with my fiance and parents, and all of us loved this musical. None of us knew what the story was when we went in, but it was very easy to follow. All of the actors/actresses had great, clear voices, and were very funny. Even though we were...continued

Took my mom to Opening Night for Mother's Day. She loved it! 9 to 5 is one of her favorite movies, so we had high expectations for the musical. We got orchestra seats. What a bargain and the seats were FANTASTIC!
It was a fun and...continued

If you are looking for a light hearted and very entertaining evening, this performance fits the bill perfectly. None of the songs other than 9 to 5 are very memorable, but they are pleasant and fit the show. Diana Degarmo (Doralee) gave an...continued

The music except for the famous theme song was un memorable. Diana de Garma was good as Doralee but the show lacked luster, energy and musicality..It was like a College play..Not very good

We loved Working 9-5! The singers and dancers were wonderful, in fact, we couldn't have had a more fun evening. We laughed all through the performance at the situation and the dialogue. Our seats in the orchestra were tops. Don't miss it!!

While I saw the pre-broadway version at the Ahmanson, it was interesting to see a new take on this in the touring version. The Dolly video was -- well strange - but they did make some fixes from the pre-broadway.

Not totally impressed with the...continued
