A double DVR alert for musical fans

Tomorrow, CBS has not one but two segments for musical theatre fans!

First up, at 9 a.m., is Sunday Morning with a feature on the Broadway revival of Hair, which opened last week to terrific reviews at the Hirschfeld Theatre.

"The 1960s musical, Hair, was revolutionary theater for its time, taking on the Vietnam War, environmental destruction and poverty. CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric speaks with the creators and cast of a Broadway revival that may seem tame by today's standards but still packs quite a punch."

Then at 7 p.m., 60 Minutes interviews Dolly Parton, who wrote the songs for the musical 9 to 5, which begins previews at Broadway's Marquis Theatre on Tuesday:

"Dolly Parton, the oh-so-country music superstar with the city-slicker sense of show business talks to Morley Safer about her childhood, her career and the Broadway production of her film, 9 to 5."

Here's a brief clip from the interview: (And football season's over, so you know it'll start on time!)
