World-famous film director Guido Contini is facing both a mid-life and a marital crisis as he attempts to come up with a plot for his next film.  Flashbacks reveal the substance of his life as he examines his relationships with the many women he has known and as each comes to remind him of who he is, why they love him, and why he needs them.  Based on Fellini’s 8 ½ , Nine is a celebration of the power of women and the many roles they play in man’s life – mother, sister, teacher, temptress, judge, nurse, wife, mistress, muse.  A score full of passion, romance, and brio brings this sultry and enchanting musical to unforgettable life.  A rich and thrilling night of theatre, Nine garnered both the 1982 Tony for Best Musical and the 2003 Tony for Best Revival.
