Ever have the feeling that if you just got your boss out of the picture, you could run the company the way it ought to be run?
These ladies did, with a ball-gag and a lot of forged signatures.
The Broadway musical version of "9 to 5" will land at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts on Tuesday. With songs written by Dolly Parton, the show — based on the hit 1980 movie that launched her into superstardom — received four Tony Award nominations and a record 15 Drama Desk nominations when it debuted in 2009.
In the show, three polyester-clad women in a stifling circa-1980 workplace fantasize about how they would kill Franklin Hart Jr., their "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" of a boss. A mad-cap adventure ensues when they discover they may have accidentally poisoned his coffee, replete with a kidnapping, a joint and lots of show-stopping musical numbers.
