We went to a matinee and bought lunch on the Plaza. Not inexpensive, but tasty and convenient.

Traffic on 101 getting there was HORRIBLE, it took us 2 1/2 hours bumper to bumper the whole way. Made mistake of merging on to 110 and got off at 4th. Next time we will stay on 101 and get off at Temple.

Saw "9 to 5" last night...and yes, I think it's gone from a 9 to a 5. While overall I really enjoyed it and had a good time, it was hard not to be frustrated by a few things.

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?
