This season we are excited to announce our new Concert Series. Performed in the Madden Theatre we will transform the space into an intimate cabaret room where with a live orchestra and a cast of talented actors performing a concert version of the Tony Award winning musical Nine.
From Broadway to Film and back to live Theatre, NINE, is based on Federico Fellini’s semi-autobiographical film 8½. The famous Italian film director, Guido Contini, has turned forty and faces double crises: he has to shoot a film for which he can’t write the script, and his wife of twenty years, the film star Luisa del Forno, may be about to leave him if he can’t pay more attention to the marriage. As it turns out, it is the same crisis. Guido’s mind becomes increasingly preoccupied with his Guilty Pleasures, fantasy and reality become inextricably intertwined by the power of women answering the question, “What are women to men?”
