Like the original 1980 movie, the musical tells the story of three workmates who have enough of their sexist boss, and plan to kidnap and turn the tables on him.

The film's screenwriter Patricia Resnick has also written the story of the musical, with songs from Dolly Parton herself.

There are also plans to release a soundtrack album featuring the main cast.

We can't wait, Dolly!

Meanwhile, there are also plans in motion for a remake/sequel of the classic movie.
