Pour Yourself A Cup of Ambition

Do you ever sit at your desk and not work? Well, obviously. But how about instead of finishing those TPS reports, you find yourself staring out the window, conjuring the best way to break out of the working-blues shackles? Well then, chances are good you have seen 9 to 5. The 1980 film starring Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda was an instant classic, and the legacy continues with the script getting a musical upgrade. The outlandish comedy focuses on a scenario all too often only imaginary: What would happen if you kidnapped your boss? But one of the defining pieces of the cinematic beauty is the title song. That's right, through the irreverent humor and star-studded cast, it's the music that emerged on the other side as a winner. Which is why it is so fitting to give the entire story line a musical face-lift and a brand-new life with a brand-new audience. Are you ready to relive the '80s? If so, 9 to 5 is for you. 9 to 5 the Musical is playing live from now till January 19 at Stage Door Theater, located at 8036 W. Sample Road in Coral Springs. Tickets cost $38 each plus fees.
