Amber is set to star as Judy Bernly, who was originally portrayed by Jane Fonda in the movie. She will star alongside Louis Redknapp and Natalie McQueen, who will play Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton's roles, respectively.

9 to 5: The Musical will feature songs written and sung by Dolly Parton, while the story will be similar to the 1980 movie, whereby three female coworkers try to get revenge on their sexist, misogynistic boss.
