9 to 5: The Musical will launch its national tour on September 21 at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville. Additional tour engagements include previously announced stops in Atlanta, Chicago and Seattle, as well as cities such as St. Louis, Tampa, Costa Mesa, Charlotte, St. Paul, Indianapolis and Dayton. Jeff Calhoun will direct and choreograph the touring production, and Lisa Stevens will serve as the show's co-choreographer.

Based on the 1980 film of the same name about a trio of office workers who turn their tables on their sexist and egotistical boss, the show features a score by Dolly Parton, which includes her Academy Award-nominated title song, and a book by Patricia Resnick, co-author of the film's screenplay. Casting will be announced at a later date.

The creative team will include Ken Foy (scenic design), William Ivey Long (costume design) and Ken Billington (lighting design). Calhoun's credits include Grease and Big River.
