Broadway goes 9 to 5

The working ladies of 9 to 5 are back and hitting Broadway. There will be performances this fall in LA and then the show moves to Broadway in March 2009 for previews. Official Broadway open date is April 23, 2009.

Set to star in the Broadway version are four-time Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Allison Janney as Violet, Stephanie J. Block (if you saw Wicked in Tampa, she was Elphaba) as Judy, Megan Hilty as Dorelee, and two-time Tony Award nominee Marc Kudisch as Mr. Hart.

The book is written by the original screenwriter, Patricia Resnick. Music and lyrics are by, who else, Dolly Parton. Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler (In the Heights) will choreograph.
