The Maury Yeston Songbook #MusicalMonday

Celebrate the Birthday of Nine with Maury Yeston!

The surprise hit of the 1982 season, Nine was a brilliant (and brilliantly executed) take-off on the unique universe of Italian film director Federico Fellini.

Propelled by a surprisingly (by Broadway standards) imaginative and florid score by Maury Yeston, in Tommy Tune’s eloquently suggestive black and white direction, the show opened to rave reviews at the 46th Street Theatre on May 9, 1982, and easily won the Tony® for Best Musical, a confirmation of its success that translated into a total run of 729 performances.
