* CigaretteOfAnxiety: Violet's son offers to roll her a joint to get her mind off her problems at work, which she initially refuses and argues against, but when her son asks how long she's been waiting for the promotion, Violet casually says, "Slip it in my purse." Later on, the joint gets shared with Doralee and Judy in an "old fashioned lady's pot party" at Doarlee's house where they end up sharing their [[ImagineSpot revenge fantasies]].

!!The [[MusicalTheater Broadway Musical]] has examples of:
* AdaptationalPersonalityChange:
** Tinsworthy. In the film, he appears to genuinely beleive that Hart is responsible for the rise in productivity. In the stage production, he has heard of Violet even before meeting her, believes her CharacterFilibuster (although he pretends to think her confession is a joke), and makes her CEO.
** Roz, whose affection for Hart is expanded from the film.
* {{Adorkable}}: Judy, who shares trivia when she's nervous.
-->'''Violet [Thinking she's killed Hart]:''' I'm gonna walk the green mile, just like Susan Hayward in Film/IWantToLive!
-->'''Judy:''' Fun fact: she won the Oscar for that role!
-->'''Doralee:''' Judy, not helping!
* BigBraToFill: Rare is the Broadway actress with the physique of Music/DollyParton. Most production's Doralee, including original Broadway cast's [[{{Series/Smash}} Megan Hilty]], are noticeably less-endowed. Doralee is still implied to be extremely buxom, however, so most productions do what they can to pad the costumes and accentuate what the actress has.
* CanonForeigner: Joe, a junior accountant who was added in order to give Violet a love interest. His importance to the story is lampshaded after he helps gather evidence of Frank's embezzlement.
-->'''Violet:''' We couldn't have done it without you, Joe!
-->'''Joe:''' [[LampshadeHanging Yes you could]].
* CharacterFilibuster: Violet's speech to Tinsworthy, confessing her crimes and explaining how she does all the work and Hart takes all the credit because he's "The Guy".
* JukeboxMusical: Averted. The music is composed by Music/DollyParton, but with the exception of the TitleTrack, it is all original and written specifically for the play.
* IAmSong: The three leads all sing "Shine Like the Sun", in which they each stand up to Hart and affirm who they are. Doralee also sings "Backwoods Barbie", which, being written by Music/DollyParton herself, is [[WriteWhoYouKnow clearly autobiographical]].
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Roz. Her feelings for Hart have been upgraded from "loyal, possibly amorous" to full-blown LustObject status.
* IntercourseWithYou: Roz's "Hart to Heart".
* IWantSong: Hart's "Here for You", singing of his longing for Doralee. Also Violet's "One of the Boys", dreaming of becoming CEO.
* PeriodPiece: The 70's setting from the film is maintained; this is reinforced throughout the show with references to 1970's pop-culture and technology, such as Violet's son wanting "Something called an [[UsefulNotes/Atari2600 Atari]]" for his birthday.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: [[AdaptationalContextChange Changed from the film]] to be the more conventional kind; in the stage production, Tinsworthy realizes that the women are behind all the productive changes, and assigns Hart to Bolivia with the intent of getting rid of him.
* ShoutOut: Judy and Violet appear to be film buffs, referencing films like Film/IWantToLive and DoubleIndemnity.
