The outrageously entertaining and always timely 9 to 5: The Musical follows the hilarious adventures of a trio of female office workers who turn the tables on their sexist boss. When his abusive behavior becomes too much for them, the three take matters into their own hands, kidnapping him and running the office themselves. As they take charge, they find out there's nothing they can't do ... even in a man's world. This crowd-pleasing musical comedy -- based on the hit 1980 film starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton -- boasts music and lyrics by Parton and a book by Patricia Resnick, who also wrote the film. Parton's score was nominated for a Tony, and the titular theme song won two Grammys and was nominated for an Oscar. Learn More

Well worth the time and asking price. My only criticism is the volume of the horn section in the orchestra (yes, there is an orchestra in the house!) which tended to drown out some of the lyrics, especially during solo pieces, but this is nitpicking. Go see it while you can, because we could all use some feeling good. I have never seen a show in Simi (I live in Oxnard), but now I look forward to going back!
