Nine: The Musical
New Broadway Cast Recording
Antonio Banderas, Jane Krakowski and Chita Rivera

"Lush and hypnotic. Antonio Banderas is a bona-fide matinee idol for the 21st century. Maury Yeston's score is ravishingly inventive!" That’s what Ben Brantley declared in The New York Times after the opening night performance of this Fellini-inspired musical based on the classic film 8-1/2. Howard Kissel in the New York Daily News cheered, "Nine is one hot number," while Peter Travers in Rolling Stone simply called it "the hottest show on Broadway."

NINE revolves around one central character, Guido Contini, a film director in the Fellini mold. He is contracted to write and direct a film, but is unable to come up with a suitable plot. After recent box office failures, he finds himself drifting towards a nervous breakdown. Guido finds himself examining his past flawed relationships with the many women who have come through his life and the struggle to act his mature age of 40 as opposed to nine. Antonio Banderas made his acclaimed Broadway debut playing Guido Contini with Laura Benanti as Claudia, Tony Award-winner Jane Krakowski as Carla, Mary Stuart Masterson as Luisa and Chita Rivera as Liliane La Fleur.

PS Classics has also released the acclaimed recording of The Maury Yeston Songbook which Show Business called "A spectacular achievement from beginning to end… a CD of uncompromising integrity, beauty and ravishing performances."
