We dare you to find one gay man who grew up in the 1980s who doesn’t know every line from the office revenge comedy 9 to 5.
The classic film starring Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda has spawned a Broadway musical, exciting news of a sequel starring the original cast, and countless Halloween costumes for gays around the globe.
If you missed the musical during its brief run in New York, fear not. A local production can be seen right here in North Texas thanks to Theatre Arlington. With music and lyrics by none other than Parton, the fast-paced laugh-fest brings everything you remember from the film and takes it to new levels through song and dance.
And plenty of Skinny & Sweet.
9 to 5 The Musical

Tickets: $24 to $26
