Dolly Parton is desperate for her musical to have a run in London's West End.

The country singer - whose show '9 to 5: The Musical' is based on her classic hit of the same name - would be thrilled if the production played to British audiences.

She said: "Well, I'm hoping London does happen because I've written all the music. It's opening in Los Angeles later this year, and will hopefully open on Broadway in New York in spring 2009."

Dolly thinks the show will be a hit with British fans as they seem "appreciate" her more.

She added to Britain's Heart FM radio station: "I think that a lot of times the U.K. audiences are better for me because people kind of take you for granted in your home town or your home country."

"Through the years my UK fans have kept telling me how much they appreciate me and what I do. I don't get to come over to the UK often but I've always had wonderful times here. We've had great audiences here so why not?"

Meanwhile, Dolly was a guest mentor on 'American Idol' Tuesday.

The top nine contestants of the hit TV talent show each sang one of her songs before Dolly and the judging panel - Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson - gave their opinions.
