9 to 5 the Musical description

Did you love the 1980 movie 9-5, shoulder pads and all? Wasn't it wonderful! Now it's back, on the West End stage for the first time, and the anticipation is mounting fast.

Everyone loves Dolly Parton, a talented lady with a big, generous heart. Her music has made millions of us happy: Jolene, Here You Come Again, Stand By Your Man... magical. And this superb musical is going to make friends and influence millions of us all over again. It's on for a strictly limited West End season. You'll find it at the magnificent Savoy Theatre. It stars the brilliant Louise Redknapp, Amber Davies, Natalie McQueen and Brian Conley. And they haven't messed with the glittering 1980 score, a classic blend of Dolly hits that was Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-nominated, to which a few new tunes have been added.

What's the story?
Born in 2008, 9 to 5 The Musical weaves the tale of the disillusioned office workers Doralee, Violet and Judy. They hate their super-sexist bullying fool of a boss, and they're not afraid to show it. When, one day, he pushes too far and pushes them over the edge, they retaliate by tying him up and taking over. So far so good, until the CEO pays a surprise visit – will all their hard work unravel? When one of the women panics, thinking she's actually killed their boss, does everything collapse?

Presented by Dolly herself and inspired by the cult film, this is a glittering, heart warming, fun-fuelled and totally, wonderfully uproarious West End show that takes on The Man... and wins hands down.

If you're searching for a satire starring three rebellious women against the world, this is it. If you love a musical where you recognise every song and love them all, this is it. If you have ever enjoyed drug-induced fantasies of killing the slave-driving chauvinist that runs your workplace, it'll feel eerily familiar. Only joking!

Who is this show for?
This show is suitable for most ages.

Sadly wouldn’t recommend

Was looking forward to this show but was somewhat disappointed, 4 of us went and only 1 enjoyed it, the rest of us just thought it was ok. Bonnie Langford was the star of the show and I love Brian connelley however his overacting was a bit much at times. Sadly not the cast lineup I was expecting to see either.

Love this theatre, great seats and good views even in restricted view areas. Very funny show with some innuendo so probably not for very young audience. Music and cast are amazing. Bonnie Langford is outstanding!!! I have been a fan since her Just William days and am an even bigger fan now. A good night out.

The show is a must to see, so surprisingly funny, acting was top drawer, Brian Conerly has lost his touch he was hilarious. Bonnie Langfords dance and moves were like watching a teenager. The actress who played Dolly was superego it was like watching Dollynherself. Just the sounds were a bit distorted whilst they were singing some of the solos. Dress circle is a great area to sit.
