Great first act but the second act is a letdown. A great cast sustains the energy throughout, however.

Great staging, singing, fast-paced and highly entertaining. I had my doubts about Allison Janney but she did just fine. But Megan Hilty stole the show! Excellent cast. I heard everyone talking about it as I walked out.

Description

Don’t miss this new musical comedy based on the classic hit movie! 9 to 5: The Musical features a brand-new score by seven-time Grammy Award®-winner Dolly Parton that includes the blockbuster title song, plus a book by original screenwriter Patricia Resnick and direction by two-time Tony Award®-winner Joe Mantello (directing his first new musical since Wicked).

Emmy Award®-winner and Tony Award®-nominee Allison Janney stars as Violet Newstead, the super-efficient office manager who joins her fellow co-workers – frazzled divorcée Judy Bernly (Stephanie J. Block) and sexy secretary Doralee Rhodes (Megan Hilty in the role originated by Dolly Parton in the film) – to turn the tables on their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot” of a boss, Franklin Hart Jr. (Tony Award®-nominee Marc Kudisch).

In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy -  giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover and rise to the top of the company that once looked at them as second-class citizens. A girl can scheme can’t she?
