Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with their sexist, egotistical, hypocritical, manipulative and obnoxious boss:  kidnap and hold him hostage in his own home while they get the ultimate revenge.  Can a team of secretaries really take control of the company that has always kept them down, and get ahead in the impenetrable boys' club?  Like the original movie, 9 to 5 is a comedic romp that tackles real issues while it is busy tickling funny bones.

Multiple Tony Award-winning Musical Sensation!

By: Lin-Manuel Miranda
Book by: Quiara Alegría Hudes
Directed and Choreographed by: Amanda Folena
Musical Direction by: Eryn Allen

From the creator of Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda: In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood - a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.
