“This spectacular winner of the 1982 Tony Award for Best Musical delighted Broadway theatergoers in a hit revival in 2003. Based on Fellini's classic film 8 ½, Nine is the story of a famous film director and his attempts to come up with a plot for his next film as he is pursued by hordes of beautiful women, all clamoring to be loved by him and him alone. Flashbacks reveal the substance of his life - which will become the material for his next film - a musical version of the Casanova story. A sexy, sophisticated delight!” Music and Lyrics by Maury Yeston - Winner of the Tony Award for Best Original Score in 1982 (Nine), and 1997 (Titanic).
"A galloping fantasy with a ravishingly inventive and tuneful score."
New York Times
