Pushed to the boiling point by their boss, three female co-
workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical,
lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. They conspire to
take control of their company and learn there's nothing they
can't do -- even in a man's world. Set in the late 1970s, 9 TO 5:
THE MUSICAL is a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in
the Rolodex era. Outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a
little romantic, 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is about teaming up and
taking care of business.
