'9 to 5,' now and then

“My whole thing is telling the story,” Hoty said. “In 1979, they didn’t have those bells and whistles. Your imagination will fill that in.”

At a time when the economy has affected women and men alike, the play’s message of people pulling together and taking a different path to success is one that resonates, Hoty believes. It’s also incredibly funny.

“I’m still doing it and I find it hilarious,” she said. “These women form a bond, this unlikely band of women just trying to get through the day, and it morphs into this thing with their boss. Everybody gets their comeuppance.”
