Tuesday night, I was a privileged lady. I received an invite to attend the opening night of 9 to 5: the Musical, complete with pre-show reception and VIP after party with the cast. Since this was the world premiere of the national tour, there was quite a lot of hoopla involved: limos, red carpets, VIP passes and celebrities such as Naomi Judd, Bo Bice and Oprah's father.

Oh, and one other celebrity was there too:
Yep, that's really her. The one and only Dolly Parton! This was taken at the pre-show reception, a smart move on my behalf because the after party was much more crowded. But not so crowded that I couldn't get autographs of the leading ladies and Dolly herself, who wrote every song in the musical, on my Playbill (which has become a family tradition). She also came out to greet and thank the crowd after the curtain call:

But enough about my hob-knobbing. The show is SO great! I purchased tickets to tonight's show a while back and I am more than giddy about seeing it again, this time with my friend Missy. If it's coming to your city (Atlanta, Charlotte, Huntsville, Tampa, Memphis: I'm talking to you), then you need to buy tickets today!


  1. Still jealous. Way to slip in that Naomi Judd was there.

  2. Star - I got a photo with her too. I'll email it to you.

    KBF - yes, YOU :)

  3. When I first read your tweet, I didn't know if this was real or Madame Tussauds.

  4. I am so jealous!!!!!


Oh goody!
