“WHAT’S A GOOD THING FOR, IF NOT FOR TAKING IT TO EXCESS?”

Book by Arthur Kopit

Music & Lyrics by Maury Yeston

Adapted from the Italian by Mario Fratti

By arrangement with ORiGiN™ Theatrical on behalf of Samuel French, inc.

Set in 1960s Italy, Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit’s Tony Award-winning musical NINE follows film director Guido Contini as he suffers a midlife crisis fueled by his crumbling marriage and a smattering of unsuccessful films. His failure at the box office is mirrored in his life behind the silver screen – caught in a web of romantic entanglements, involving his wife, his mistress, his muse, and every girl in Venice. Haunted by images and memories from his past and bereft of an idea for a new film, Guido watches as his reality blurs into fantasy. The women in his life, emerge from the shadows of his mind to serenade, seduce or scold him. Though his body is clearing forty, his mind is nearing ten; Guido must grow up if he is to recapture his creativity and save his marriage.

THE WILD PARTY

Based on the explosive 1928 poem by Joseph Moncure March, The Wild Party tells the story of the scintillating Queenie and her hot-tempered lover, Burrs. In a heated moment of violence and vulnerability, Burrs suggests the two throw a party to end all parties. With a guest list worthy of Sodom and Gomorrah, the party brims with vaudeville’s bawdiest. From a brassy stripper to a devilish playboy, a sinful brother act to a fading Broadway diva, an ex-boxing champ to an ex-chorus girl, a hopeful ingénue to a pair of hopeless producers, and a flock of vivacious chorines to a morphine addict, the line-up of characters are as wicked as they come.

Tension builds when Queenie’s best friend and rival, Kate, arrives with her latest accessory, Mr. Black, who catches the eye of the enchanting hostess. During the wild night of a gin, skin and fun, the guests find themselves caught in a tangle of lust, limbs, and secrets. After midnight dies, however, they are left with feelings of hopelessness and regret that linger in the sobering morning light.

Franklin Shepard, a successful songwriter and movie producer in his late thirties, reviews his life, both
professional and personal, especially his relationships with his best friends, Mary and Charley
(his song-writing collaborator), and his two wives, Beth and Gussie. The action moves backward
in time from 1976 to 1957, from the disappointments of adulthood, to the hopeful idealism of youth.
