When the highest-grossing comedy, "9 to 5," starring Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, Dabney Coleman and Lily Tomlin, exploded on the cinema screens in 1980, the laughs hid a serious message about women in the office. "Still Working 9 to 5" explores why workplace inequality 40 years later was never a laughing matter.

"Still Working 9 to 5" examines the 40-year evolution of gender inequality and discrimination in the workplace since the 1980 release of the classic seminal comedy, "9 to 5," starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, and Dabney Coleman.

BroadwayWorld will premiere exclusive clips from "Still Working 9 to 5" in the coming weeks; watch out for interviews with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Allison Janney, Stephanie J. Block, Rita Moreno, and more. A feature interview with co-directors and co-producers Camille Hardman and Gary Lane is also forthcoming.
