Mon, 21 Jul 2008 08:47:50
Well-endowed country singer and actress Dolly Parton is revisiting her old stomping ground. Parton will contribute the music and lyrics to the Broadway version of her classic 1980 film romp, Nine to Five.
The musical will open in April 2009, with Parton contributing 20 new songs alongside her original score. Parton was nominated for an Oscar for the title song, which was featured heavily in the film about three office dwellers who hatch a plan to get back at their underhanded, chauvinistic boss. Allison Janney is set to star in the stage adaptation.
