Not Even Dolly Parton’s Chest Can Keep 9 to 5 Afloat


Labor Day is the expected funeral for Dolly Parton‘s Broadway effort. 9 to 5, which Parton wrote the music for, was trounced by critics, and audiences weren’t exactly arriving in droves. This, in an environment where Broadway is about to the the billion dollar mark. The musical is, however, expected to tour after leaving Broadway after its brief five-month run. (Disney’s The Litter Mermaid is also closing Labor Day.)
