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!

Vibrant retelling of an 80s classic with glamour, humour, retro 89s stying at its best and excellent powerful women in the starring roles. A musical equivalent of popping candy that keeps you tapping, clapping and singing along to the end. Wonderful!

The show follows the plot of the film closely but the music wasn’t from Dolly Parton and at no point during the show do they ever sing the original 9-5 song. The songs weren’t memorable at all. I love Dolly Parton and the original film but this wasn’t well done in my opinion.

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.
