When I talked to Dolly Parton in the fall of 2005 (click here to read the interview and here to check out my rundown of her sauciest sound bites), she was busy penning songs for a planned 2007 Broadway production of 9 to 5. Well, she was only two years off. The musical will finally hit New York in April 2009, after a six-week warmup in Los Angeles this fall, Reuters reports. I’m in. Especially after reading that The West Wing‘s Allison Janney will take on Lily Tomlin’s role. Perfect! I haven’t been this excited since, well, Equus‘ Broadway run was confirmed. (Who’s already got their tickets for that?) And who’s excited about the 9 to 5 musical?
