Lyric Stage to Bring NINE to Dallas City Performance Hall, 11/8-9
Lyric Stage continues its 21st Season with NINE the musical at the beautiful Dallas City Performance Hall, 2520 Flora Street, Dallas, TX 75201. Performances are November 8 at 8:00 PM and November 9 at 2:30 PM & 8:00 PM.
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, you won't want to miss your opportunity to experience this fantastic musical featuring the Lyric Stage Orchestra in the Dallas City Performance Hall.
