Footlite Musicals concludes 2013-14 season with 'Nine'

Critics have described the musical “Nine,” running May 2-4, 8-10, 15-18 at Footlite Musicals, as “lush/hypnotic” and “a true piece of arm come to life onstage.” Footlite’s production will be presented at the Hedback Community Theater, 1847 N. Alabama St., Indianapolis.

Curtain times are 7:30 p.m. for Thursday performances, 8 p.m. for Friday and Saturday performances and 2:30 p.m. for Sunday matinees.

Admission is $20 for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday performances and $10 for the Thursday shows. Due to the mature subject matter of the musical, “Nine” is not suggested for children.

All seats are reserved, and reservations may be made by calling the Footlite box office at 926-6630 or online at www.footlite.org.

The original Broadway musical won five Tony Awards in 1982, including Best Musical, and two additional Tonys, including Best Revival of a Musical, in 2003. This is the first time in 22 years that “Nine” has been produced in Indianapolis. Based on Federico Fellini’s film “8 ½,” the musical has music and lyrics by Maury Yeston, with a book by Arthur Kopit adapted from the Italian by Mario Fratti.

“Nine” is the story of a celebrated Italian 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. Flashbacks reveal the substance of his life, which will become the material for his next film: a musical version of the Casanova story.

Andy Morales stars as Guido in the Footlite production, which is a tour de force for an ensemble of 21 female characters, including Molly Gray as Sarreghina, Arlene Haskin as Guido‘s mother, Holly Hathaway as Luisa, Stacia Hulen as Carla, Theresa Koleszar as Claudia, Vickie Cornelius Phipps as Liliane La Fleur and Ethan Holder as the 9-year-old Guido.

“Nine” is produced for Footlite by Jeff Farley, with direction by Tim Spradlin, vocal direction by John Phillips, musical direction by Deb Farmer-Smith, choreography by Deb Isaacs, costume design by Susan Sanderock and hair and makeup design by Daniel Klingler.

Footlite Musicals is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation founded in 1955 offering the best of Broadway by presenting seven musical productions each year. Free parking is available along Alabama Street in front of Footlite’s home, the Hedback Community Theater, and in a lighted parking lot behind the theater.
