This spectacular musical delighted Broadway theatergoers in a hit revival in 2003 starring Antonio Banderas. Nine is the story of celebrated film director Guido Contini and his attempts to come up with a plot for his next film as he is pursued by hordes of beautiful women, all clamoring to be loved by him and him alone. Flashbacks reveal the substance of his life which will become the material for his next film: a musical version of the Casanova story.
Nine has also been adapted into a major motion picture from Rob Marshall, the acclaimed director of the 2002 film version of Chicago. From Broadway to Film and back to live Theater, this fantastic musical featured the Lyric Stage Orchestra in the Dallas City Performance Hall.
