9 to 5, What a way to spend an evening

This past weekend we saw The Arlington Players put on 9 to 5 the musical. We did so not because we're cultured people, but for a more practical reason: one of Shira's friend's was singing in it, and we wanted to hear her.

Regardless of what got us to the show, I'm very glad we went. It was magnificent. The singing, the acting, the technical aspects, they all seemed high quality. Of course, I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I know what I like; and this I liked.

The timing of the show couldn't have been better. One of the blogs I follow recently published a piece praising Dolly Parton, the creator of the musical and the the singer of the song that started it all. With a new found respect for Parton, how could I not enjoy getting in on her production?

I'm going to have to keep an eye on future Arlington Player productions, as they're a gem in my own back yard.

And for your viewing and toe tapping pleasure, here's a mashup of the song and the movie (which inspired the musical). Ahhh, the 80's. Good times.
