The actress replaces the new staging's original Lady of the Spa, Deidre Goodwin, who crosses the street to star in Broadway's Chicago.

Hendy made her Broadway debut in the 2001 revival Follies as the Young Solange. Other regional credits include Man of La Mancha, Sweeney Todd, Jack or the Submission and A Little Night Music.

The new David Leveaux staging of Nine stars Antonio Banderas making his Broadway debut as the show's focal character Guido Contini opposite a cast of women including Chita Rivera, Jane Krakowski, Laura Benanti and Mary Stuart Masterson.

The production received eight 2003 Tony Award nominations including nods for Banderas, Krakowski, Rivera, Masterson, Leveaux, orchestrator Jonathan Tunick, lighting designer Brain MacDevitt and for Best Revival of a Musical.

The run was recently extended through Nov. 2. Banderas previously told Playbill On Line (May 14) he would stay with the show as would many of his co-stars — including Rivera, Krakowski and Masterson. Benanti, however, will soon leave the production to begin rehearsals for the upcoming Broadway staging of Richard Greenberg's The Violet Hour.
