9 to 5: The Musical to Capture Tulsa’s Attention
MUST SEE: 9 to 5: The Musical will be performed at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center from June 14-19.
9 to 5: The Musical will open at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center June 14-19 for a limited engagement of eight performances only. Tickets are currently on sale.
9 to 5: The Musical had its world premiere engagement in Los Angeles at the Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre on Wednesday, September 2008 and opened on Broadway at the Marriott Marquis Theatre on April 30, 2009.
9 to 5: The Musical marked the Broadway debut of seven-time Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter and musician Dolly Parton as composer and lyricist.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better experience on my first Broadway show,” says Parton. “I’ve had the privilege of working with an amazing group of people who have become like family to me. I can’t wait for this show to hit the road so people across the country can see why I’m so proud of everyone involved.”
The musical is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. This is the story of three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do, even in a man’s world. Outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic, 9 to 5: The Musical is about teaming up and taking care of business. It’s about getting credit and getting even.
Radio says “You will love this show! 9 TO 5 is a real 10!” Other reviewers agree. The Associated Press calls it “A certified crowd pleaser!” and the Daily News sums it up by saying “it shines! Parton’s songs are bouncy, big-hearted, fresh and original. If you’re looking for a diversion, 9 to 5 will do the trick from 8 to 10:15!”
9 to 5: The Musical’s book is by Patricia Resnick who is co-writer of the original screenplay. The touring production will be directed and choreographed by Tony nominated Jeff Calhoun. “I met Dolly Parton as a chorus kid dancing in the film ‘The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas’ only a few years after ‘9 to 5’ was already a hit movie. It was a thrill to work with her then and an honor and privilege to be entrusted to direct and choreograph this exciting new tour of 9 to 5: The Musical.”
The co-choreographer is Lisa Stevens, scenic design is by Ken Foy, costume design is by five time Tony Award winner William Ivey Long, lighting design is by Tony Award and Drama Desk Award winner Ken Billington, music supervision is by Stephen Oremus and casting is by Telsey and Company. For more
