Green Bay, Wis.—This July, Theatre on the Bay (TOB) performs “9 to 5 The Musical,” a hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era, based on the book by Patricia Resnick and seminal 1980 hit movie, featuring music and lyrics by Dolly Parton. Set in the late 1970s, the show is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.
