So after a long day at your thankless job, you're tipping back a few with a couple of coworkers, bitching about your boss and fantasizing ways to get rid of him for good. Something everyone can relate to, right? But what if it didn't stop there? Get revenge vicariously through Violet, Judy and Doralee -- three office drones at Consolidated Companies who actually follow through on their fantasies of overthrowing the boss, taking his job and running the company in a more efficient, humane manner. Yes, the 80s are back, and it's enough to make you crazy if you let it. 9 to 5: the Musical
plays the Fox Theater (527 North Grand Boulevard; 314-534-1111 or www.fabulousfox.com
) Tuesday through Sunday (February 8 to 20). Based on the original movie, the musical features Dolly Parton's classic hit and a score of other songs written by the indomitable country star. Tickets run $24 to $66.
