Who knew how political 9 to 5 would be when they chose it a year ago in the context of today's metoo movement? I never saw the movie or the show before. Very powerful workplace and pro-feminist story.
The show runs though August 5.
If there are no tickets online, get in touch with me or show up about an hour before the show and there are always some available at the door. A big cast with some gorgeous people (I won't be sexist here) and wonderful dancers, a few who are out of the LaGuardia HS dance program a decade ago.
We first noticed Courtney Sanello (Dorallee) when Susan cast her for a small role in “Little Shop of Horrors” a few years ago. Susan has a way of discovering talent, as since then Courtney has graduated from the William Esper Studio and a member of SAG-AFTRA (www.courtneysanello.com). She perfectly captures the Dolly Parton twang (not bad for a girl from Atlantic Beach) and plays the role of the sex bomb the boss lusts for perfectly.
Jessie is sharing the role of Judy with the great RTC quadruple threat Catherine Leib, who is not only acting but co-directing and even doing costumes. Maybe quintuple threat. I’m looking forward to seeing her interpretation of the role in the next few weeks.
There’s so much more to say about the production but the editor is tugging at me to stop. More next week.
