'9 to 5' closing on Broadway in September, touring in 2010

Posted on

The Dolly Parton-penned 9 to 5: The Musical will stage its last performance on Broadway on Sept. 6. “I couldn’t have asked for a better experience on my first Broadway show,” says Parton in a message on her web site. “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 next year so people across the country can see why I’m so proud of everyone involved.” The show earned four Tony nominations, including Best Original Score for Parton, as well as nods for lead actress Allison Janney, featured actor Marc Kudisch, and choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler.
