‘NINE The Musical’ set for Melbourne
For a strictly limited season at Chapel Off Chapel in Prahran, VIC, audiences can fall in love with the Tony Award-winning NINE on October 12-28. Directed and choreographed by Michael Ralph, with musical direction by Nathan Firmin, NINE The Musical is a Broadway masterpiece not to be missed.
In this show, the spotlight is on famed Italian film director Guido Contini, who is suffering debilitating writer’s block while facing a marriage breakdown in the middle of having a mid-life crisis. At the age of 40, Guido must call on the nine closest and most powerful women in his life to put him back on the road to success and happiness. Set in the romantic streets and canals of Venice, the story celebrates our mothers, our sisters, our teachers, our wives and our muses.
It’s based on Federico Fellini’s Academy Award-winning semi-autobiographical film 81/2. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1989, winning five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. In 2009, a film version of the musical was released, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Fergie and Marion Cotillard.
