South Florida's Slow Burn Theatre Stages 9-5 THE MUSICAL At Broward Center

Slow Burn Theatre Company and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts present the Tony Award-nominated musical 9 to 5 in the Amaturo Theatre Thursday, March 28 through Sunday, April 14.

With music and lyrics by country superstar Dolly Parton and book by screenwriter Patricia Resnick, this musical is based on the 20th Century Fox film of the same name and features Parton's infectious country-rock score with "Backwoods Barbie," "Shine Like the Sun," "Get Out and Stay Out" and the Grammy-winning title song.

Pushed to the boiling point, three female workers concoct a plan to get even with their sexist, egotistical, lying boss Mr. Hart. Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasies giving their workplace a makeover and taking control of the company that has always kept them down.

Originally produced on Broadway by Robert Greenblatt, 9 to 5 first opened on Broadway in 2009. This production featured a star-studded cast including Stephanie J. Block, Megan Hilty, and Allison Janey. The production was nominated for four Tony Awards, including Best Original Score for Parton. The musical recently opened on London's West End at the Savoy Theatre.

Slow Burn Theatre Company's production of 9 to 5 stars Laura Hodos (seven-time Carbonell nominee), Erica Lustig (National Tour Hair) and Jeanine Gangloff Levy (Carbonell nominee for her role as Paulette in Slow Burn Theatre Company's Legally Blonde) with Ben Sandomir as the company's boss. Other members of this talented cast are Cindy Pierce, Clay Cartland, Stephen Hedger, Chris Alvarez, Jinon Deeb, Nicolette Quintero, Mike Cartwright, Sandi Stock, and Sabrina Gore with an ensemble featuring Jerel Brown, James Giordano, Sahid Pabon, Robert Fritz, Nicole Kinzel, Sara Grant, Kristi Rose Mills, and Alexandra Frost.

Artistic director Patrick Fitzwater stages and choreographs this production of 9 to 5, leading a team comprised of music director Michael Ursua, lighting designer Tom Schorrock, costume designer Rick Peña and sound designer Jeff Lehman.

This production is presented through special arrangement by Music Theatre International MTI and contains some adult language, adult situations, depictions of drug use and loud noises.
