Nine

Date: 31 Jul 2019

Set in 1960s Italy, Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit’s Tony Award-winning musical NINE follows film director Guido Contini through a midlife crisis fuelled by his crumbling marriage and a smattering of unsuccessful films.

His failure at the box office is mirrored in his life behind the silver screen – a web of romantic entanglements, involving his wife, his mistress, his muse, and every girl in Venice.

Haunted by images and memories from his past and bereft of an idea for a new film, Guido watches as his reality blurs into fantasy. The women in his life, emerge from the shadows of his mind to serenade, seduce or scold him.

Though his body is clearing 40, his mind is nearing 10; Guido must grow up if he is to recapture his creativity and save his marriage.

Alexander Andrews directs this Little Triangle production.
