In a sad case of life imitating art just as it ends the life of said art, the Times blog ArtsBeat breaks the news that 9 to 5 The Musical, the Broadway musical with songs written by Dolly Parton about three women (Stephanie J. Block, Allison Janney and Meghan Hilty, pictured) in the 80s exacting revenge upon the corporate sexism of their bosses, will be performed for the last time on September 6. The relatively lavish production at the Marriott Marquis Theater wasn’t making enough money to satisfy its (presumably male) investors, and will likely be replaced by a musical about superheroes or wizards or something.
