"I'm signed on through August," she said in the Tony Awards press room. "And we believe Antonio Banderas is signed through November. So, now they're talking to all of us about staying through November. I'd love to do this show longer, because I love this role so much."

When Roundabout Theatre Company head Todd Haimes appeared in the Tony press room, he went even further, saying, "Nine is definitely extending through November with this cast....I think this show is fantastic. I'd like to see it run for a few years.

Krakowski, who dramatically enters the production from the flies every night, said she had had no mishaps as of yet. "So far, so good. We do the flying process every night before the show to make sure it's working right." "I had no idea what was going to happen [with the entrance]," she continued. "I know there was some pressure to do something new, because Anita Morris had been so great in the role in the original. I remember when David Leveaux told me how I was going to enter. We were in a cab going downtown. And he said, 'I'm thinking we're going to fly Carla in.' I literally flew at him at the other side of the cab, I was so happy.'"
