Tag Archives: 9 to 5
When the 9 to 5 bowed in 1980 , the movie about women rebelling against being taken advantage of was downright funny, even if the injustice and sexism it depicted was universally acknowledged as all too common. The musical version revived by Slow Burn Theatre Company is still pretty funny, but in the wake of the #metoo movement, it inherently contains a bit more topspin on the revenge fantasy against behavior now deemed inexcusable.
Enjoy Broward Stage Door’s 9 to 5 The Musical, an undemanding cartoonish musical comedy that provides a pleasant way to pass an afternoon or evening. This production works thanks to amiable performers, a droll concept and a score that waxes between infectiously peppy to affectingly earnest if not especially profound.
