The NEW YORK TIMES is reporting that the DOLLY PARTON-penned Broadway musical, "9 To 5," is closing on SEPTEMBER 6th at the MARQUIS THEATER. The show, based on the 1980 film of the same name, opened on APRIL 30th, starring ALLISON JANNEY, STEPHANIE J. BLOCK and MEGAN HILTY. It was nominated for four TONY AWARDS this year, including "Best Original Score."
Although no reason was given as to why the show closed, the NY TIMES writes that the show was not financially profitable; the budget was $10 million and for a run of eight performances, the total gross was $694,650 and attendance was only 70% of capacity.
The show will be taken on a national tour beginning in SEPTEMBER 2010 in NASHVILLE.
