Dolly Parton makes her debut as composer and lyricist with 9 to 5: The Musical — based on the 1980 film 9 to 5, which marked Parton’s debut as an actress. Gender stereotypes, office politics, and unforgettable dialogue (who can forget the “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot” played by Dabney Coleman?) give the film staying power and real-world relevance. With 15 Drama Desk and four Tony nominations, don’t expect anything less from the theatrical adaptation. As part of the Cadillac Broadway Across America series, 9 to 5: The Musical lands at the Majestic for eight performances only. $20.75-$60.75, 8pm, the Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston, majesticempire.com. Runs through December 12.
