I have to link this, because it’s fantastic.
A post over at The Light Network listed a blog post from KTLA’s Morning News about Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” musical, slated to open on Broadway in April of 2009.Â Apparently the opening night of Dolly Parton’s musical had some technical difficulties, and Dolly saved the day from her seat.Â From the article:
Audience members could hear construction equipment like power drills and saws at work while Dolly continued to charm the audience with a talk about the origins of the musical show; as well as introducing her ‘9 to 5’ film co-stars. As the delay continued, Parton offered to take questions from the audience; and then asked if the audience would like for her to sing another song; ‘I Will Always Love You.’ Before beginning the second number Dolly told the crowd, “Maybe I’ll wait, in case things get screwed up again and I have to fill more time.”
