9 to 5

It's true. It's here. "9 to 5: The Musical!"

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Broadway...

Ok, at least that's what Ms. Parton says:

"People ask if I'm gonna be in the play. I say, 'No, I think I'm a bit over the age of wantin' to be a secretary,'" Parton said in her radio chat. "But they asked me to write all the music for it, so I have written all the music. And it's supposed to open on Broadway in the spring of 2009. I believe they're gonna be doin' a workshop out here at the Shubert in the fall of next year."

Welcome to development hell, Dolly. Broadway style...

Well hello, Dolly.

I hope they keep the team from the workshop, Joe Mantello, Allison Janney, Bebe Neuworth, and Mark Kudish! Can't wait.

Reminds me of my favorite Dolly quote from the movie of Best Little Whorehouse: "It's always a business doing pleasure with you, boys..." Should the workshop team stay intact, and with Ms. Parton's music, this one should be a hit!
