Poor Guido Contini is dreading his 40th birthday and facing a midlife crisis – his creative impulses are blocked and he’s caught in a web of romantic difficulties. At least he’s living in early-1960s Venice. Maury Yeston was intrigued by 8½, the Federico Fellini film, and felt that his “Nine … became an essay on the power of women by asking the question, ‘What are women to men?’ Nine answers that women are our mothers, our sisters, our teachers, our temptresses, our judges, our nurses, our wives, our mistresses, our muses.” Come see this intriguing feminine mix portrayed by Seattle’s foremost musical theater divas! The original Broadway production opened in 1982, ran for 729 performances, and won five Tony awards, including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Original Score. We’re excited to show you why!
