BWW Blog: NINE at NYU Steinhardt Those looking for innovative and impactful theater are in for a treat with NYU Steinhardt's upcoming production of NINE.

In this musical adaptation of Fellini's 8 1/2, NINE features one man and the dozens of women in his life. Celebrated but impetuous film director Guido Contini, succumbing to the pressures of filming his latest film epic, suffers a midlife crisis. One by one, women from his past and present - including his mother, his wife, his mistress, and his leading lady - haunt, instruct, scold, seduce, and encourage him until he finally learns to grow up.

The show is running from September 22nd-September 26 at the Frederick Loewe Theater, featuring Jordan Segal (Thursday, Saturday, Monday) and Jake Wernecke (Friday, Sunday) as Guido Contini, Lexi Pappas as Luisa Contini, Alexandra Rose Meli as Carla, Stephany Levi as Claudia, Lily Soto as Liliane La Fleur, Kayla Rodríguez Pérez as Guido's Mother, Kelsey McDaniel as Sarraghina, Gillian Weatherford as Stephanie Necrophorus, Clare Martin as The Lady of the Spa, Julia Dale as Lina Darling, Eden Franco as Mama Maddelena, Katherine Ertman as Little Guido, and a talented ensemble: Kate Carey, Noelle DeFelice, Nadia Duncan, Sarah Duren, Emily Frick, Akshara Gunda, Rene Kozlowski, Katie Nam, Jade Navarro, Ana Riley-Portal, Sophia Rogers, Allison Steinert, Yumeko Stern, Christina Swanson & Grace Yurchuk.
