On Thursday, April 30, 2009, the lights of Broadway will shine bright as our client Patricia Resnick’s 9 to 5: The Musical opens at the Marquis Theatre. Recently receiving 15 Drama Desk nominations, tonight’s show is the result of nearly a decade of work, which started when several high level producers contacted Patricia to gauge her interest in turning the film (which she wrote) into a musical.
She chose to partner with the fabulous Robert Greenblatt who was producing Six Feet Under at the time. Soon after, the pair got in touch with Dolly Parton who agreed to write the music and lyrics. Added into the mix were Bob’s high school friend Joe Mantello, and incredible cast including Allison Janney, Megan Hilty, Stephanie J. Bloch, and our gifted client Marc Kudisch, and – as the saying goes – the rest is history! Break a leg!
