A Little Bit of Broadway

Nine

With the new Rob Marshall film debuting next week, I thought it only fair to listen to the music of None. Based on of Federico Fellini's autobiographical film . It focuses on film director Guido Contini, savoring his most recent (and greatest) success but facing his fortieth birthday and a midlife crisis blocking his creative impulses and entangling him in a web of romantic difficulties in early-1960s Venice.

The show was a great success in 1982, winning 5 Tonys, including best musical.

We are listening today to the 2003 revival cast.
