News from E! online via Yahoo, as they report that a musical adaptation of "9 to 5" is being planned.
According to the article, the show will feature 20 songs written and composed by Dolly Parton. It will have its premiere and seven week pre-Broadway run in Los Angeles, before opening in New York at the Marriott Marquis Theatre on April 23, 2009.
The show will feature "Wicked" stars Stephanie J. Block and Megan Hilty, as well as "West Wing" star Allison Janey.
I met Dolly once while visiting a friend at a studio. I popped in between takes, trying not to interfere and she walked right up to me and said "Hi, I'm Dolly." Immediately my first thought was "well no kidding." but I managed to keep myself in check and greeted her back. We ended up have about a 10 minute conversation about mostly small talk, but I never forgot how outgoing and friendly she was. Dolly is a five star professional. Glad to see she's still figuring out a way to make a living.
