Don't Get Mad. Get Even
Before Legally Blonde, another famous flaxen-haired feminist stood up to the patriarchy in one of the funniest films of the 80s. Starring living legends Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, 9 to 5 became the 20th highest-grossing comedy film of all time and solidified Parton's mainstream pop culture icon status. Don't miss a strictly limited run of the madcap musical adaptation of the film, presented by local company Slow Burn Theatre and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, March 28th - April 14th 2019.
With original music written by Parton herself, 9 to 5 The Musical received 15 Drama Desk and four Tony Award nominations for its Broadway run in 2009. The hilarious story follows the misadventures of Violet, Judy and Doralee, three mistreated female coworkers and friends whose fantasies about getting even with their lying, sexist and bigoted boss become reality when Violet accidentally stirs rat poison into his coffee, setting off an hysterically funny series of events.
