Photo Flash: First Look at George Dvorsky, Dee Hoty, Holly Davis and More in NSMT's 9 TO 5
This new outrageous musical comedy is based on the hit 1980 movie and features Dolly Parton's original hit title song along with her new Tony Award and Grammy-nominated score. 9 to 5: The Musical is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era. Featuring a book by Patricia Resnick (co-writer of the original screenplay), 9 to 5: The Musical tells the story of three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there's nothing they can't do - even in a man's world.
Dee Hoty will star as Violet Newstead, the role created by Lily Tomlin in the hit 1980 film. Joining Dee Hoty in 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL will be Holly Davis as Judy Bernley (the role created by Jane Fonda) and Shayla Osborn as Doralee Rhodes (the role created by Dolly Parton). NSMT audience favorite George Dvorsky will take a leave from this season's Off-Broadway smash hit Closer than Ever to play Franklin Hart, Jr., the boss you love to hate. Rounding out the featured cast will be popular Elliot Norton and IRNE Award winning actress, Kathy St. George playing Mr. Hart's "administrative eyes, ears, nose, and throat," Roz Keith.
The ensemble features Amy Bodnar, Patrick Boyd, Jermiah Ginn, Derek Hanson, Kevin B. McGlynn, Natalie Newman, Rommel Pierre O'Choa, Sarah M. O'Connor, Peter Romagna, Shannon Lea Smith, Jonathan Stahl, Merrill West, and Toni Elizabeth White
