The musical is based on the 1980 film of the same name starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin. In 2009, the musical opened on Broadway starring Allison Janney, Stephanie J. Block, Megan Hilty and Marc Kudisch. And now, in April 2018, Firebrand Theatre opens a production at The Den Theatre.
Three female coworkers decide to kidnap their sexist boss and take over their office. There is the newcomer who is just trying to fit in. There is the woman who everyone assumes is having an affair with the boss. And then there is the long time employee who wants to run the company herself.
The show opens with the titular song and sets a great tone for the show. It’s greatly choreographed for the large cast. There are 12 actors and a four piece band.
“Heart To Hart” is a very funny piece. It features one of the secretaries singing about what she could get her hands on the boss.
