Opens February 18!!

NINE  is based on Italian director Federico Fellini's classic film 8 1/2. Set in the early 1960s, the wonderful musical follows a celebrated Film director, Guido Contini, who is suffering from a mid-life crisis and an artistic mental block.  He runs off to Venice, pursued by a bevy of women all clamoring for his love and attention. The show has Intriguing flashbacks, sexy song-and-dance numbers, and romance. The score by Maury Yeston, of PHANTOM fame, is filled with haunting melodies and musically and vocally challenging ensemble singing. The original 1982 musical won five Tony Awards, including best musical and best original score. A 2003 revival of the musical won two Tony Awards. Nine is also being turned into a major motion picture starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Penélope Cruz, Dame Judy Dench, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, and Sophia Loren.
