Presse : "Overinflated whoopee cushion" (Ben Brantley-New York Times) / "If you're looking for a little diversion, it will do the trick from 8 to 10:15." (Joe Dziemianowicz-New York Daily News) / "Goofily entertaining show." (Elisabeth Vincentelli-New York Post) / "It plunges one into a mindlessly passive euphoria." (John Simon-Bloomberg) / "If seeing Y-chromosome-addled cartoon characters get their due is your idea of an empowering experience, or at least a good time, 9 to 5 has your number." (Elysa Gardner-USA Today) / "Lavish and harmless entertainment" (Linda Winner-NewsDay) / "Unquestionably entertaining and likely to be pleasing Broadway audiences for some time." (Erik Haagensen-Back Stage) / ""9 To 5" rates a 5 for content but the razzle dazzle factor earns a 9. Depending on your taste for mindless extravaganza, the show's overall score is somewhere in between." (Roma Torre-NY1) "This overblown musical is bound to cause a division between critics looking for freshness and audience members all too eager for theatrical comfort food." (Frank Scheck-Hollywood Reporter) / ""9 to 5: The Musical" is a mixed bag. Savor it for Parton's songs and the three women who sing most of them. They make the case for the show being more than just another workday event." (Michael Kuchwara-Associated Press) / "The promising material and terrific performers are too often sold short by clumsy story-building, overwhelming sets and unfocused direction." (David Rooney-Variety)"

Commentaires longs: La version mise en scène par Joe Mantello à Broadway avait été programmée en 2001 mais a été postposée de trois ans suite aux attaques terroristes du 11 septembre 2001.
Dans cette production, de nombreux changements ont été introduits par rapport aux deux grandes version précédentes (Broadway 19000 et Londres 1992).
Presse : BEN BRENTLEY of the NEW YORK TIMES says “A very impressive achievement.” CLIVE BARNES of NEW YORK POST says “There's more ironic style here than theatrical substance.” HOWARD KISSEL of NEW YORK DAILY NEWS says “A show both repellent and riveting.” ELYSA GARDNER of USA TODAY says “Squalid splendor.” FRANK SCHECK of THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER says "Demands to be seen." MICHAEL SOMMERS of STAR-LEDGER says "Extremely thoughtful fun." MICHAEL KUCHWARA of Associated Press says "Stunning, gut-punch of a musical ."

Commentaires : The 50th Anniversary production of Mart Crowley's groundbreaking 1968 play The Boys in the Band also marks its Broadway premiere and plays a strictly limited 15-week engagement at the Booth Theatre.

The comic-drama originally premiered off-Broadway at the Playwrights' Unit in April 1968. After an initial intended run of just five performances, The Boys in the Band quickly gained a cult following, transferred to Theater Four on West 55th Street and ran for over 1,000 performances. Celebrity patrons during that period included the likes of Jackie Kennedy, Marlene Dietrich, Rudolf Nureyev, and Groucho Marx. The entire original off-Broadway cast also performed the play to great acclaim in London and were immortalised in William Friedkin's 1970 film adaptation.

Now, five openly gay producers have assembled an openly gay director and nine openly gay actors to mount a star-studded revival on the Great White Way and fifty years on, the piece shows us in equal measures just how far we have come and how, in other respects, nothing has changed at all. The play, of course, predates Stonewall and the AIDS epidemic and concentrates on the themes of self-loathing and homophobia. "Show me a
