When Dolly Parton, who starred in the hit movie version, 9 to 5, and Patricia Resnick premiered 9 to 5: The Musical in Los Angeles in 1980, they probably never imagined it would go on to receive the most Drama Desk® Award nominations in Broadway history as well as four Tony ® Award nominations.  More so, here it is 35 years later and the show is still packing houses all over the country and still with pertinent messages.  The Alhambra Theatre & Dining, the nation's longest running professional dinner theater, will run 9 to 5: The Musical presented by Brumo's Automotive from September 16, 2015 through October 18, 2015.

It's Halloween weekend and every dramatic personage and theatrical type we've ever encountered is caught up in the annual rush to find just the right costume for their holiday revelries (we confess we've never had the knack for coming up with Halloween get-ups - not since we went in drag to a party at the First Baptist Church as the age of 12…tongues were wagging, we are certain, but we lived to tell about it, so it couldn't have been that bad). In the meantime, there are all sorts of onstage happenings this weekend to keep you otherwise engaged should the difficulty of selecting your costume prove to be too much.
