9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the  seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the  Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. 

Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist,  egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and  Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise  engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had  always kept them down.
