9 to 5 - The Musical (Original Broadway Cast Recording)

Nominated for four Tony Awards, the 2009 Broadway musical adaptation of the popular 1980 movie Nine to Five has birthed an accompanying soundtrack that's great fun regardless of whether you've seen the theatre performance. Dolly Parton doesn’t appear on any of these tunes, but since she wrote the entire score, her playful presence is felt throughout — especially on the songs sung by Megan Hilty, who perfectly portrays Parton’s character Doralee Rhodes for this production. Parton penned a few extra verses for the catchy title track, which opens with blithe aplomb and tons of personality. Allison Janney affects a flawless Lily Tomlin impersonation as Violet on the clock-punching anthem “Around Here,” but Hilty sounds so much like a dead ringer for Parton on the endearingly twangy “Backwoods Barbie” that should a Dolly Parton biopic come to fruition, Hollywood would be hard-pressed to find a better candidate to play her — just listen to the hilarious “Cowgirl’s Revenge.” It should come as no surprise that Parton's witty brand of contagious country pop makes perfect sense on a Broadway stage.
Dolly does broadway proud
Living in los angeles I was able to see the premiere of this play. Its always quite intresting to see what numbers change as a result of moving to broadway. A few new ones were added to aid in the flow of the play. and i think they work. This show was such a delight with all 3 ladies (megan, allison and stephanie) Each pulling their part. Each actress has her "spotlight number " where they really get to show case thier talent. Although i think Allison does a great job in "one of the boys" and megan is equally as great in " backwoods barbie" its stephanie who gets the plum song of the show in "get out and stay out". Dolly does a great job at making contry contemporary and equally contemporary broadway. fun songs fun show!
9 to 5 = Greatness
This is the best show on Broadway and this is the best cast album I have heard in a very long time. Stephanie J. Block is my favorite voice to listen to. Megan Hilty brings such greatness to the role Allison Janney is such a joy to watch I Love you Dolly Parton for this wonderful Musical! :-) - Jarrett! I
