When 9-5 was scheduled to appear at the New Theatre Oxford, we grabbed the opportunity to be among some of the first to see the new UK tour and original cast including Bonnie Langford, Ben Rhodes, Jackie Clune, Natalie Casey and Amy Lennox, not to mention our own Lisa bridge who plays the part of Maria and is second cover for Roz and Judy.
From the very first loud note that literally makes you jump out of your seat, you are transported back to a 70’s office atmosphere.
With superb choreography and excellent choice of costumes, the show is a delight from beginning to end, full of amusing situations and funny one-liners from the witty script.
The energy levels are high throughout the show and the cameo role of Dolly Parton overlooking the whole thing was a great touch for Dolly Parton fans.
9-5 The Musical is one of those wonderful shows that you need to view several times to capture all the detail and I just can’t wait to see it again when the show comes to Milton Keynes Theatre in March.
