In 9 days, The Tony award-winning musical, NINE, will feature the Molloy College Theatre Arts CAP21 program right here on the Madison Theatre Stage on October 27th at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and on October 28th at 3 p.m. .
The musical is based on Federico Fellini’s semi-autobiographical film 8½. The book was written by Arthur Kopit and the Music and Lyrics by Maury Yeston. 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. NINE became an essay on the power of women by answering the question, “What are women to men?”
The cast consists of 13 CAP21 Theatre Arts students, all in their senior year here at Molloy College.
