THEATER | "9 to 5: The Musical"


The hit 1980 movie "9 to 5," starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton, resonated with many women-in-a-man's-world who worked hard for their money, felt utterly underappreciated, and dreamt of ways to turn those tables. If this sounds familiar, indulge in a little revenge fantasy this weekend, when Everyone's Theatre Company's staging of "9 to 5: The Musical" hits School of the Arts (45 Prince St.). Based on the film, the show follows three fed-up female employees who ultimately outwit their horror of a boss, and features music and lyrics by Dolly Parton. Pushed to the boiling point by their boss, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call boss.

The show kicks off this weekend, Saturday, June 22, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 23, at 2 p.m., and continues through June 30. Tickets are $15 in advance ($10 for students, seniors, and TANYS members), or $20 at the door ($15 for students, seniors, and TANYS members). For more information, call 415-4747 or visit
