David Hasselhoff will play Franklin Hart Jnr in 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL at The Savoy Theatre from 2 December 2019 until 8 February 2020.
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!

A bit loud at one stage, screechy voices. Theatre not heated. Otherwise brilliant show. So much going on, you'd easily miss a good bit. The whole audience were applauding. It's been along time coming, it's what we all want, a helarious and down to earth and rivetting show.

I'm an avid theatre goer.... I have seen worse musicals, but there is so much better out there for the money. I almost gave up and left at the intermission. The acting and singing performances were decent enough but the story doesn't live up to the movie and, bar one, the songs were utterly forgettable. I wish I had seen something else. The one nice thing is the theatre here had roomy seats with good leg space.

Show was so good. Interspersed with updates from Dolly herself it was a funny reflection on the origins of girl power in the corporate world. Bonnie Langford is an absolute legend. Brian Conley played a great Hart Jr. But fill credit to the amazing talent of the three leads. Perfect casting, booming voices and a thoroughly enjoyable evening
