Shows by Women. For Women.

In honor of Women's History Month, we are putting the spotlight on this sampling of shows - written by women, for women. As there are many more such shows in our catalogue, we hope this serves as a starting point to celebrate the women of musical theatre and explore their bold, joyful storytelling.

9 to 5 The Musical

Featuring a Tony-nominated score by Dolly Parton and a witty book by the film's screenwriter Patricia Resnick, 9 to 5  is an undeniably upbeat show about frienship, standing up for what's right, and making a change. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot!

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical

Before she was hit-maker Carole King — she was Carole Klein, a spunky, young songwriter from Brooklyn with a unique voice. A Tony® and Grammy® Award-winning musical phenomenon, Beautiful tells the story of a girl who became King with the songs you remember and a story you'll never forget.
