Orchestra Rows A-Q
How was your experience?
I was drawn to this musical predisposed to enjoy it because of the movie. I hope '9 to 5' the musical has a long and successful run. My three girlfriends and I LOVED the show. This musical adaptation was everything I'd hoped for while delivering more in little appropriate plot boosts here and there (quirky supportive characters were funny). Dolly Parton's video narration was just the right touch to set a congenial tone while connecting fans of the movie with the live retelling on stage. Energetic, well cast, lively, joyful, funny and celebratory, '9 to 5' the musical deftly sang and danced through some heavy themes of the 70's while leaving me with a smile on my face a familiar tune in my ear and hope in my heart. (go see it.)
