After Thriller and Waitress, we're sad to wave goodbye to another rollicking West End musical whose run has been cut short by the coronavirus crisis. But we LOVE these celebratory quotes from its #StageFaves stars including David Hasselhoff, Bonnie Langford, Louise Redknapp, Chelsea Halfpenny, Natalie McQueen and many others.
Louise Redknapp and Brian Conley are West End bound as they return to play Violet Newstead and Franklin Hart Jnr respectively in Dolly Parton’s 9 To 5 The Musical at London’s Savoy Theatre. Louise is back from 10 February 2020 and Brian makes his entrance on 2 March.
This’ll get you tumbling out of bed (but carefully please!)… There’s a new Judy and a new trailer as Casualty star Chelsea Halfpenny takes over from Amber Davies in the West End cast of 9 to 5 THE MUSICAL. Watch with Dolly Parton here!
The stagiest weekend of the year may be over, but don’t worry, you can relive West End Live 2019 all over again by checking out StageFaves vlogger Perry O'Bree’s selfies, backstage interviews & video excerpts.

That 9 To 5 The Musical clock has been ticking and now Louise Redknapp is ready to return to the Savoy Theatre, playing the role of Violet Newstead from 25 March to 29 June 2019. After suffering a nasty injury shortly before the West End opening, Louise was forced to withdraw for a few weeks to recover. In her absence Caroline Sheen stepped in last minute to play the sassy office supervisor. So here’s an excuse to see the show again!

There’s 13 days to go until Dolly Parton’s 9 To 5 The Musical opens for previews at London’s Savoy Theatre & actress Caroline Sheen has roughly that same amount of time to learn the role of Violet Newstead following injured Louise Redknapp’s break from the show. Redknapp will re-join the show from the end of March. That’s showbiz…
What a blow for Louise Redknapp who was due to play the role of Violet in Dolly Parton’s 9 To 5 The Musical but has had to temporarily withdraw after suffering a fall on the way to rehearsals. While she recovers, the show will go on, opening for previews at London’s Savoy Theatre on the same day – 28 January 2019 – as previously planned. Now we just await the news of who will stand in for the injured star.
