MUSIC AND LYRICS BY 

Dolly Parton

BOOK BY

Patricia Resnick,

based on the 20th Century Fox Picture

9 to 5: The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, tells the story of a trio of women pushed to the boiling point by their boss in the 1980s business world. When they hatch a plan to get even and take control of their company, things spin hilariously out of control. Outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic, 9 to 5 is about teaming up, getting credit and getting even. 9 to 5: The Musical received four 4 Tony nominations in 2009.
