Dolly Parton’s stage version of the liberating movie comedy is given a sleek stage design by Robert A. Kovach, featuring a substantial looking office environment which morphs fluidly and amusingly into a wide variety of locations, often through the use of clever 1980s-era projections.

Costumes

Costumes by Shannon Smith-Regnier reflect the working attire of a large corporation in 1979, reflective of the characters’ different personalities and status in the workforce. The costumes include a variety of whimsical creations for the dream sequences: Judy’s film noir fantasy, Doralee’s rodeo fantasy, and Violet’s “animated princess” fantasy. For Violet’s Act Two fantasy “One of the Boys,” her costume includes business attire that breaks away into a white sequined pants-suit with red vest, and there are ten matching men’s suits for Violet’s backup boys.
