Parton Reunites With Fonda + Tomlin For 9 To 5 Stage Debut

Country legend DOLLY PARTON was joined by her NINE TO FIVE co-stars JANE FONDA and LILY TOMLIN at the opening night of her stage musical adaptation of the hit movie.
The show opened at Los Angeles' Ahmanson Theatre on Saturday (20Sep08) and went without a hitch - despite being marred by weeks of technical problems.
At the preview show last week (Tue16Sep08), Parton was forced to take to the stage when a glitch brought the performance to a grinding halt. She thrilled the crowd by singing her classic track I Will Always Love You until the show could continue.
And Fonda and Tomlin seemed impressed with the re-working of their big screen performances, smiling for snaps after the show with Parton and the film's male star Dabney Coleman - who played the sexist boss in the popular 1980 movie.
The show will follow on its run in L.A. at New York's Marquis Theater next spring (09).
