In the era of Rolodexes and rotary phones, every day feels like Monday with overtime for the secretaries under smarmy, pompous boss Franklin Hart. Widowed working mom Violet is passed over for promotions because she isn’t “one of the boys.” Dictation often turns into unwelcome flirtation for “backwoods Barbie” Doralee, who wants no part of Hart – despite office gossip. New girl Judy’s husband recently left her for his secretary, and the divorce has forced her into the workplace. United by their contempt for Hart, the three women share gleeful fantasies about his demise – then, after an extra-productive coffee break, devise a plan for revenge that lends new meaning to “upper management.” Take a memo: It may be a man’s world, but it’s a woman’s office. Based on the 1980 hit movie, this outrageously funny ode to female friendship and empowerment is now a hilarious, high-energy musical. Laughter and toe-tapping songs are on the agenda!
