9-5 The Musical - Review - Liverpool Empire Theatre

Saturday 3rd August 2013 - matinee

At the end of 9-5 The Musical, Dolly Parton addresses the audience via a prerecorded video message and encourages those who have enjoyed the show to spread the word and tell everyone they know.  I feel a particular sense of duty to do this as, knowing nothing about the musical or the 1980 film on which it is based & seeing Dolly’s image all over the publicity material, I assumed it was a 'jukebox' musical of the [insert song here] variety, complete with a character called Jolene and all of Parton’s biggest hits.

I have never been happier to be so completely and utterly wrong.
