'9 to 5' to work its way to B'way


With music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, "9 To 5, the Musical" is heading to Broadway for an April 2009 opening at the Marriott Marquis Theatre following a world premiere engagement at the Los Angeles Music Center's Ahmanson Theatre beginning Sept. 3.

The musical's book by Patricia Resnick is based on her screenplay for the 1980 Fox comedy, in which Parton starred. Produced by Robert Greenblatt and directed by Joe Mantello, "9 To 5, the Musical" stars Allison Janney, Stephanie J. Block, Megan Hilty and Marc Kudisch.
