Inspired by Fellini's 8 1/2, Nine revolves around central character Guido Contini, a film director in the Fellini mold. Unable to think of a suitable plot for a film he is contracted to write and direct, Guido drifts toward a nervous breakdown. As he examines his past flawed relationships with the many women who have come through his life, Guido struggles to act his mature age of 40 as opposed to nine. With a book by Arthur Kopit and music and lyrics by Maury Yeston, the show features an adaptation from Italian by Mario Fratti. David Levaux directs for the Roundabout Theatre Company.
